Sharing the history of public health with students who are the future is a passion of the museum. Over the last few months we've hosted multiple groups and have been so impressed with their curiosity and willingness to learn and ask questions. Our volunteers have gone above and beyond to accommodate these groups and we thank them for their efforts. The students participate in an exhibit search for answers to questions, then regroup in the Green Room for a review and discussion with the volunteers. The student and instructor feedback has been very positive.

We've also been pleased to host senior centers, photography groups, and municipal public health teams for tours. Please contact to plan your visit. The museum is open Thursdays and Saturdays at this time.

June Book Club

The book discussion group returns in June with Fevers, Feuds, and Diamonds: Ebola and the Ravages of History, as a tribute to Dr. Paul Farmer. Farmer was a world-renowned infectious disease doctor, health advocate, and anthropologist who died earlier this year of a cardiac event while in Rwanda. Dr. Farmer co-founded Partners in Health, a global public health and social justice organization. Join Dr. Louis Fazen, Kathy Hursen, RN, Dr. Al DeMaria, and Dr. Scott Podolsky as they discuss the book and hear your thoughts on the text. Click here to register. The discussion is June 7 at 7:00PM via Zoom. The book is available at your library, from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and as an eBook on Kindle.
