27Oct2021

Virtual lecture

From 07:00 pm until 08:00 pm

In the 1800s, Cincinnati witnessed a tremendous growth in hospitals and medical schools, all answering the needs of a burgeoning population experiencing disease and the pains and accidents of everyday life.  This presentation takes an illustrated look at the people (some of them very strange characters), philosophies, and events that forged the city's medical heritage.  Join University of Cincinnati archivist emeritus, Kevin Grace, and author of more than a dozen books on Cincinnati history, as he shares stories about Dr. Absolam Death, cholera epidemics, body-snatching, bedside training, and the role of  midwives.

Reservations required.
