Medicine and War

Sponsored by: Yale University Libraries

Join us for a Beaumont Club panel discussion on the topic of “Medicine and War,” with four panelists representing medical work in different wars. Dr. Harvey Cushing’s experiences in WWI will be represented by Dr. Dennis Spencer (Neurosurgery), while Dr. Kristaps Keggi (Orthopaedics), Shepard Stone (Anesthesiology), and medical student Melissa Thomas will discuss their experiences as medical personnel in recent wars, and talk broadly on how medicine is affected by war. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Thomas P. Duffy (Hematology) and is co-sponsored by the Beaumont Club and the Medical Historical Library, in celebration of the exhibition “Yale Medicine Goes to War, 1917,” on display in the Cushing Rotunda.
