The College’s Section on Medical History opens its program season with two thirty-minute presentations by Fellows of the College on regional topics:
“I'd rather be here than in Philadelphia": Yellow Fever Crosses the Delaware
The devastating yellow fever epidemics of 18th-century Philadelphia, particularly the horrific affliction of 1793, have long attracted the attention of historians, novelists, and even film-makers. But the mosquitoes that brought on the epidemic also knew how to cross the Delaware River. College Fellow and historian Sandra Moss, MD, MA, FCPP, will describe the little-known events on the New Jersey side of the river.
Pediatric Radiology: The Philadelphia Story
As with all other elements of the medical care of children, pediatric radiology is a world unto itself, with its own requirements and challenges. College Fellow Richard I. Markowitz, MD, FCPP, pediatric radiologist at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Professor of Radiology, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, has carefully researched the history of this subspecialty in Philadelphia, a city with a stellar pediatric heritage.
