“Medicine of the Maumee: A History of Health Care in Northwest Ohio,”


“Drawing from a number of community resources, this broadly collaborative exhibition documents the evolution and practice of medicine and the establishment of health care systems in Northwest Ohio from the earliest settlements to the 21st century, serving as ‘a mirror reflecting the development of our community,’” remarked Williams. “In addition to recording the exhibition, the catalog functions as a valuable reference tool, utilizing both a table of contents and a bibliography for optimum user navigation and a resource for further study. The page layout, typography and construction of the catalog allows for easy readability while the clear, concisely presented narrative within each chapter builds upon the previously presented material fulfilling the expressed goal of providing a humanistic interpretation which both educates and enlightens.”
