The World has Changed!
Based on three presentations at the 20th Annual Medical Conference of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine this past weekend the Museum will be looking at major changes to our interpretation of Civil War Medicine in both the terms of science, medical organization and global influence.
The presentations by Dr. Trotter, Dr. Divine and Dr. Tent have made a new and significant impact on medical interpretation of this period. Their three lectures taken as a group are very significant and will require reinterpretation or at least significant rethinking of the topic.
We will begin a grant process to put together a planning session for reinterpretation and redesign of the current interpretive plan in 2013.
Stay tuned....this is going to be a great ride.
I hope you will all consider coming to Philadelphia next year for the 21 Annual Conference.
Are their lectures available anywhere online so that others might access and read them?
I am afraid that they are not available. Since both lecturers are getting ready to publish, they declined having the programs recorded so that their sources and conclusions would be protected until after publication. We will be selling their works once published.
