A new Insight talk this week entitled ‘Good Health: Medicine and Modernism’ tells the story behind our current lightbox exhibit ‘Here Comes Good Health!’. Co-curator Alex Green reveals how the local London boroughs like Bermondsey adopted new technologies and strategies to persuade communities to become cleaner and healthier.
The talk takes place on Thursday 26th April 3-4pm. Places are limited, free tickets can collected from the Information Desk after 13.30hrs on the day.
Our popular Insight sessions offer visitors to the Wellcome Library an opportunity to explore the variety of our holdings. These free sessions are thematic in style, last around an hour and offer a chance to learn about our collections.
