Library Speaker Series: Quackery Through the Ages with Lydia Kang, M.D.

April 29 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

Free

Lobotomies. Bloodletting. Leeches. Arsenic. The usage of dubiously helpful and occasionally harmful treatments have been a mainstay of medical care since the beginning of recorded history. In many cases, these were done with the hope of a true cure, but often they were done in the guise of beneficence in order to financially benefit the so-called “snake-oil salesman.” Dr. Lydia Kang will discuss the historical breadth of how medical treatments–both well-intentioned and not–have evolved over time, and why they are still so stubbornly alive today.
