Agenda

This week, from 9 am to 5 pm, the museum is hosting a special exhibit of artifacts that belonged to staff who have served in the military, including the Civil War and both World Wars. A more limited version of the exhibit will be on display after Veterans Day through the Thanksgiving holiday. Artifacts will include scrapbooks, a Civil War apothecary kit, a bandage winder, a pocket hypodermic syringe, a gas mask and other items.

In recognition of the innovations of medical simulation technology, which is widely used for military and combat training, the museum also will host interactive, hands-on simulation activities Tuesday, Nov. 13, through Friday, Nov. 16, from noon to 1 pm. Participants will have the chance to engage with faculty from the MGH Learning Laboratory and Simulation Center as they simulate a common medical scenario using a high-fidelity robot-mannequin.

Both the exhibits and demonstrations are free and open to all. Attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch. For information about the exhibits, email Peter Johnson at pkjohnson@partners.org. For information about the medical simulation demonstrations, email Tanya Zinkus Milosh at tmilosh@partners.org.
