BALA CYNWYD: Civil War Medicine - What Went Right
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Carole Adrienne Murphy will present a talk based on her documentary series "Civil War Medicine: What Went Right."  This multi-media presentation is a sweeping look at the moment in time when medicine ceased to be considered an "art" and became understood as a "science".  The Civil War incurred one million casualties beginning at a time when probably fewer than 300 doctors in America had ever witnessed surgery or seen a gunshot wound.  It was a dramatic and evolutionary period for both medicine and humanitarian efforts.

Carole is the Writer/Producer of a four part documentary series-in-production, "Civil War Medicine". The series features more than 3,500 rare and beautiful archival images. The script is drawn from primary source materials including letters, diaries, periodicals and memorabilia from more than 40 American libraries, archives, museums and private collections, and is sponsored by the Greater Philadelphia Film Office. Carole is the host of "Student Docs", an interview program in concert with Villanova University's Social Justice Documentary Program, airing on MLTV-Main Line Network.
