George Washington and Medicine Exhibit

Exhibit at HSL through February 25, 2017 “Every Necessary Care and Attention: George Washington and Medicine.”  This exhibit on loan from the National Library of Medicine explores the story of our first President in relation to his own health and the health and wellbeing of those under his care.  This display offers a fascinating look into perceptions of illness, healing, and the practice of medicine during the colonial era.
