Visit Happy Dog to hear about “Marvels, Mavericks, and Medicine: Cleveland’s Dittrick Museum”

Brandy Schillace Happy Dog TalkAs part of Belt Magazine‘s Happy Dog University, Brandy Schillace, research associate and guest curator for the Dittrick Museum of Medical History, will give a talk titled “Marvels, Mavericks, and Medicine: Cleveland’s Dittrick Museum” at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, June 10, at Happy Dog (5801 Detroit Ave.).

Cleveland has been the epicenter of some of medicine’s greatest breakthroughs—from the treatment of polio, to dialysis technology, to the dawn of cardiac care and transplant surgery. These great discoveries were spearheaded by heroic, fascinating (and sometimes eccentric) medical mavericks. Schillace will present this history through image and story.

Boasting the most comprehensive collection of surgical instruments in America and the largest collection of diagnostic instruments and historical contraceptives in the world, the Dittrick Museum serves as collective memory for what made Cleveland a great medical center.

Happy Dog University is a series of monthly lectures presented by Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland State University and Oberlin College faculty members at The Happy Dog.
