Domenico Bertoloni-Meli, Ph.D., Department of History and Philosophy of Science, Indiana University presents “Visualizing Disease: Pathological Illustrations from the 16th to the 19th Century.”
“Visualizing Disease” explores pathological illustrations from the 16th century to the first half of the 19th century, in the period from the first representations of remarkable cases to the first comprehensive treatises with color images of diseases affecting the entire human body. The talk will illustrate and discuss the lesions found in the dissected bodies of dead patients at postmortems, and skin diseases on live patients, which played an important role in the history of pathological illustrations more generally.
Presented by the Medical Humanities & Health Studies Seminar Series. Free and open to the public. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Medical Humanities and Health Studies Program’s 2014 Spring Seminar Series will host a lecture from an internationally renowned cancer researcher at the IU School of Medicine.
Lawrence H. Einhorn, M.D., IUPUI Distinguished Professor and Lance Armstrong Foundation Professor of Oncology at the IU School of Medicine, is widely regarded as the physician who cured testicular cancer in 95 percent of cases through a revolutionary chemotherapy regimen seen as responsible for a dramatic improvement in what previously had been a devastating and rapidly fatal disease. Dr. Einhorn is also a researcher with the IU Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center.
This talk, entitled, “Testicular Cancer: A Model for a Curable Cancer,” is co-sponsored by the John Shaw Billings History of Medicine Society, the IU Student History of Medicine Organization and Medical Humanities and Health Studies.
