Quest Courses – Fall 2023 / History and Philosophy / HISTORY OF MEDICINE

Coordinators: Karen Cullen, Donna Ramer, Michael Wellner

We interact with the medical world all the time, from our daily vitamin pill, to annual check-ups, to the occasional surgery or perhaps even treatment for a serious illness.

To help us better understand this critical aspect of our lives, this course will look at the development and history of several different medical topics, such as the 1918 flu epidemic, the current Covid pandemic, governmental and social policies, gender-specific diseases and conditions, and even the financial side of medicine (to include medical insurance and all its ramifications).

A WEEK / THURSDAY / 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM
