Exhibit - 'A Look at Medicine and Medical Facilities in Early Tucson'

Tuesday, June 19, 2012 - 12:00am to Monday, December 31, 2012 - 11:59pm

A new exhibit at the University of Arizona reviews 100 years of health care history in Tucson. "A Look at Medicine and Medical Facilities in Early Tucson" showcases Tucson’s system, and business, of health care from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century. The exhibit is on display from through Dec. 31 at the UA Science-Engineering Library, 744 N Highland Ave.

"A Look at Medicine and Medical Facilities in Early Tucson" reviews the history of Tucson health care through three categories: physicians, hospitals and Tucson’s approach to treating tuberculosis. The exhibit was curated to coincide with Tucson’s 237th birthday, an occasion for which Tucsonans are encouraged to recognize our community’s history, culture, arts and environment.
