Lunch & Learn Medications & Treatments used during the American Revolutionary Period- Then & now

This presentation by David P. Bell RPh. Ph.D. will review the state of medical practice in the American Colonies during the late 1770’s with attention to medicinal agents that were used during that period and are widely accessible today. Bell compares and contrasts the treatment goals from that period to today’s standards, and how treatment with those agents differs compared to the precision today. The presenter will also dawn a custom made uniform that is similar to the uniform of the first Apothecary (Pharmacist) General, Andrew Craigie.

David Bell has a unique blend of education, experience, and interests related to the topic. The presentation blends his profession (Pharmacy), experience (Retired Pharmacy Officer US Army), member of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) John Hay Chapter, Salem IN., and long- term interest in genealogy.
