heart1Fascinating conference alert: Annual American Association for the History of Medicine Meeting starts up tomorrow in Philly, check out the panels and papers here or on Morbid Anatomy. Who wouldn't want to sit in on sessions such as "Disease in the Middle Ages: Goiter, Lupus, and Anxiety" or hear papers like "Salvage Mission: The Lobotomized Patients of the Saint-Jean-de-Dieu Psychiatric Hospital in Montreal" or talks such as "Osler and the Sanitary Movement with a Scatological Guide to Loos, Privies, and Crappers"? Wish we were going! Illustration by Marc Jean Bourgery from the John Martin Rare Book Room at the University of Iowa.
