‘The Changing Face of Medicine’ special exhibit

MARQUETTE — The Marquette Regional History Center began a new special exhibit on Monday called ‘The Changing Face of Medicine’.

The exhibit is about the history of the Upper Peninsula’s health care and the evolution of the region’s medicine over time.

People are able to learn about patent medicines and the battles of diseases from first-hand accounts.

“We just thought it was a great time to reflect and look back at where we’ve been in terms of medicine and with the new hospital being built” said curator at the History Center, Jo Wittler. “Of course, it’s really changed a lot in 100-150 years.”

The exhibit is open until the end of the year and an opening reception will be held on Wednesday night at 5 p.m.
