 Queen's physician/historian Jacalyn Duffin will present a free public lecture on her award-winning new book, Medical Miracles: Doctors, Saints, and Healing in the Modern World, on Tuesday Nov. 3.

The book recently received the Jason A. Hannah Medal from the Royal Society of Canada for an important publication in the history of medicine. Dr. Duffin, Hannah Chair for the History of Medicine, will recount stories of illness, prayer, and treatment, exploring how medicine and religion derive meaningful signs from particular instances of human distress.

Presented by the Museum of Health Care, the lecture will be held in Room B139 Botterell Hall at 7pm. A reception following the lecture will be held at the museum at 32 George Street.
