Black American contributions to the field of medicine

Black History Month

Black history is American history. It is interwoven in the fabric of this country. Until such time American history is inclusive to all, we will take the opportunity to share the contributions of Black Americans during Black History month. This year for the month of February MCC’s Damato Library is featuring an informational display on Black American contributions to the field of medicine. The display highlights little known individuals like Solomon Carter Fuller who conducted dementia research with Alois Alzheimer and then translated Alzheimer’s research and published the first comprehensive review of Alzheimer’s cases. Or learn about Patricia Bath, a founding member of the American Institute for the Prevention of Blindness who invented a surgical tool that resulted in less painful and more precise treatment of cataracts. A special collection of books that may be borrowed are included in the display as well.
