Sour Stomachs and Galloping Headaches

This 2005 exhibition provided a broad overview of North Carolina's medical history by highlighting some of the common ailments that afflicted our ancestors, as well as some of the deadly epidemics they faced. Together, these highlights introduced visitors to the multitude of references in the UNC library that are available to researchers interested in the evolution of public health care.

This website is a condensed version of an exhibition that appeared in the North Carolina Collection Gallery from June 22 to September 30, 2005.
