GW and Medicine

The Robert B. Greenblatt, M.D. Library is hosting the Every Necessary Care and Attention: George Washington and Medicine traveling exhibit from the National Library of Medicine. The exhibit will be on display on October 28-December 7, 2013.

This exhibit explores the story of George Washington’s own health and examines the ways in which he sought to safeguard the health and wellness of those under his care. Washington’s story illuminates the broader context of the experience of illness and the practice of medicine, which during this time was transitioning from a traditional healer craft to a profession.

This exhibit was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, and George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate, Museum and Gardens.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information, please go to
