THU, DEC 1, 2011 (1:02:23)

Founded in 1811, Massachusetts General Hospital is one of Boston’s most venerable institutions with an astonishing breadth of medical innovations. Two recent projects commemorate the 200th anniversary of this hospital, a facility that today is on the cutting edge of biomedical research and patient care. In this talk, Peter Johnson discusses the creation of the Paul S. Russel, MD, Museum of Medical History and Innovation. Additionally, author Webster Bull discusses his book Something in the Ether: A Bicentennial History of Massachusetts General Hospital. This program is cosponsored by Massachusetts General Hospital and is funded in part by the Lowell Institute.
