History of Medicine - The George Washington Corner Society

The G. W. Corner Society, named after the University of Rochester's first professor of anatomy, is a group of healthcare professionals, students and other participants interested in the history of medicine. The group meets approximately nine evenings each year; each event begins with a social hour followed by a lecture on a historical subject. 

Mical Raz, MD, PhD, MSHP, is the Chair of the Corner Society.

“Race, Big Pharma, and the Surprisingly Long History of the Opioid Crisis”

Presented by David Herzberg, University of Buffalo

Thank you for your continued support of our Society’s work. We are delighted to re-launch our new series, which will begin on September 22nd, when we host Prof David Herzberg, renowned expert in the history of drug policy. 

**Please note, we had to make a few covid related adjustments to our usual practice. These changes include – there will be no food/wine reception for the time being (an announcement will go out when this is resumed) and we will be offering a zoom option for remote attendance. Our venue will require masking at all times while indoors, and we encourage unvaccinated individuals to choose the remote option, leaving the in person event for vaccinated participants. **
