The next Chicago Area Medical Archivists Medical History Symposium will be held Friday, October 28, 2011. It will be graciously hosted by the Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology. Thank you to CAMA member and secretary, Felicia Reilly, for coordinating the event!
The Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology is located in Park Ridge, IL, about fifteen miles northwest of downtown Chicago. For more information on their institution, please visit their wonderful website:
Since October 2002, CAMA has sponsored a medical history symposium hosted by member institutions. Past symposia have featured presentations by archivists, librarians, physicians and nurses, institutional exhibits, roundtable discussions and facility tours. The presentation topics are usually centered on local medical or nursing history.
The presentation slots are filling up quickly, and we plan to have a full-day’s worth of speakers. If you have a speaker or topic in mind for the symposium, please contact CAMA!
