Mobile Medical Museum Lecture Series Continues with 'Civil War Medicine'

The next lecture of the Mobile Medical Museum's Lecture Series will feature Dr. Kenneth Rettig, retired professor of pediatrics at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine and a pediatric endocrinologist with USA Physicians Group.

Dr. Rettig's presentation, titled "Civil War Medicine," will take place April 22, 2015, at 6 p.m. in the University of South Alabama Marx Library, Room 181. Light refreshments will be provided.

The lecture will explore how the Civil War helped to move American medicine from a poorly organized "cottage operation" to a more modern model. The presentation will kick off the opening of the Mobile Medical Museum’s new exhibit, War and Medicine, which will be on display from April 20 to Oct. 2, 2015, in the Mary Elizabeth and Charles Bernard Rodning Gallery on the third floor of the USA Marx Library.
