Keeping It Clean By Norma Galambos
It is often a handful of visionaries that bring about great change. When I was researching my podcast episode, “Boil Water!” | Frontier Midwives, I became interested in medical practises used in the 1800 and 1900s. With our healthcare system on shaky ground, it seemed poignant to write about this. I wondered if, as I observed our scrappy quest for hand sanitizer, people were aware of how the practice of sanitization came about; that it was considered a major medical breakthrough?
