The Library’s Health Sciences Historical Collections is pleased to announce Dr. Timothy Fabian’s lecture, The American Civil War: Hidden African American Contributions and Medical Advances. Dr. Fabian, Professor in the UTHSC Department of Surgery, will present his lecture in connection with the NLM traveling exhibit currently on display at the library, Binding Wounds, Pushing Boundaries: African American Contributions to Civil War Medicine.

Dr. Timothy Fabian received his medical degree from Loyola University. After a fellowship and faculty appointment at Emory University, he joined the UTHSC faculty in 1980.

He is a past President of both the Eastern and American Associations for the Surgery of Trauma and has authored over 40 book chapters and 400 peer-reviewed manuscripts. Dr. Fabian was inspired to study the subject of African Americans in Civil War medicine after seeing the NLM traveling exhibit a few years ago.
