Medical History Interest Group Lecture Series

Laupus Library History Collections & the Department of Bioethics & Interdisciplinary Studies sponsor the Medical History Interest Group Presentations as an educational service for the East Carolina University community. The Library hopes that the speakers and topics selected will promote a greater understanding of the historical and philosophical underpinnings of today's health care disciplines.

For more information contact our History Collections department.

You can also view recordings of many of our past presentations in our archives.
