Civil War Medicine: What Went Right

Tue, January 29, 2019 1:30 P.M.
Chestnut Hill Library

You are invited to explore, discover, discern, learn & appreciate this talk, as part of our 2019 Speaker Series.

The extraordinary levels of battlefield carnage during the Civil War demanded a new, scientific approach to medicine - previously an art. Documentary filmmaker Carole Adrienne presents a compelling slide show from the 4-part series she is developing for PBS, to premier on WHYY.
