Moody Medical Library Exhibit: African Americans in Civil War Medicine - through Dec. 15

The Moody Medical Library is hosting the National Library of Medicine exhibition: Binding Wounds, Pushing Boundaries: African Americans in Civil War Medicine. Many histories have been written about medical care during the American Civil War, but the participation and contributions of African Americans as nurses, surgeons and hospital workers have often been overlooked. This exhibit looks at the men and women who served as surgeons and nurses and how their work as medical providers challenged the prescribed notions of race and gender. More information can be found at www.nlm.nih.gov/exhibition/bindingwounds/index.html.

The exhibit is on display on the second floor of the Galveston Campus library from Nov. 8 - Dec. 15.
