Talk: Washington’s Medicine: Blood and Guts in the 18th Century
February 22, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$10
Join us on Washington’s birthday for a sometimes humorous and interactive look at the crude and frequently innovative medical treatments of 18th century medicine. Dr. Abraham Byrd, a Tucson family physician and Surgeon General for the Sons of the American Revolution, will discuss medical practice on the frontiers of New Spain and in the eastern colonies. Dr. Byrd will look at the early days of health care when the cure could be as bad as the disease. Call (520) 398-2252 now to make your reservation. $10 fee includes all day admission to tour the Park.
