Museum Tour:

As both a cultural and educational institution, the Museum strives to preserve artifacts and records of our nation’s history in public health and serve as a resource to the community to educate and promote public health initiatives that address current health issues.

The tour of the museum was led by Linda Perry and included the history of public health hospitals, infectious diseases (tuberculosis, smallpox, polio), patent medicines, mental health, dental health, nursing and education.

The exhibits included many medical procedures that were pioneered in Boston hospitals and adopted by the Tewksbury Hospital.

SMG Presentation

Over lunch, SMG Corporate Services presented their active shooter training program.

We are grateful to the guides at the Public Health Museum and SMG Corporation for their participation in the tour and the sharing of their knowledge and experience.

Note that the next meeting of the Chapter will be at the Currier Museum of Art, Manchester, NH from 9:45am to 1:45pm on Thursday, October 25, 2018.
