Library Sponsoring Lecture on African-American Contributions to Civil War Medicine
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 Professor in the Department of Surgery and served as Chair of that department from 1999 until 2016. 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.
The lecture will be Tuesday, March 27, at noon, in GEB A204. Light refreshments will be served, and the first 25 attendees will receive a free box lunch. The lecture is open to all students, staff, and faculty. Please contact Jennifer Langford at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
