Blast from the past!

This was one of the original logos for GHSLA.  There was a contest and the winner was Lee McCarley, who was at Mercer at the time in the summer of 1999!

Save the date for our next event!

Our next event will be Thursday, December 8th at 2pm: a virtual tour of the Historical Collections and Archives of the Robert B. Greenblatt MD Library at Augusta University.

The Historical Collections & Archives of the Robert B. Greenblatt, MD Library houses and preserves rare books of the health sciences as well as medical artifacts, such as instruments and anatomical models from the 19th century. The virtual tour will highlight these treasures, including the exhibit Bronchoscopic History of Dr. Clyde Edison Purcell, 1905-1947; William Hunter’s book the Gravid Uterus, published in 1774; Raymond Ahquist’s Lasker Award, and other historical items.  Recent renovations to the space will also be highlighted.

Don’t miss this unique and interesting tour, led by GHSLA member and Greenblatt’s curator of the HCA, Renee Sharrock!  More details to come…

We have moved!

The website migration went well; we are now with a new host.  Hopefully, it will make the website management much easier for the next Web Communications Coordinator!  Thanks to the GHSLA Executive Committee for approving the migration.
