Join us for the 15th Annual Lincoln Lecture Series featuring an engaging program with Dr. Glenna Schroeder-Lein, author of Lincoln and Medicine. Many people have conjectured about Abraham Lincoln’s health. Dr. Schroeder-Lein will speak on the 16th president’s health and what we can actually know about it based on hard evidence. Learn more about disease in central Illinois and local developments in medicine, at this talk.  While at the museum be sure  to see our special exhibit, “A History of Healing: Infectious Diseases and Community Responses to Defeat Them“ to learn more.
