In recognition of the historical implications of the current world-wide COVID-19 pandemic, applicants this year are encouraged to consider topics related to the history of pandemics and history of health inequities.
This annual essay contest is sponsored by the Friends of the P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library in memory of Danny Jones, MLS, former Head of Special Collections at the UT Health Briscoe Library and Past President of the Friends.
In honor of the P.I. Nixon Library's 50th Anniversary, and in light of COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings, the Friends of the Nixon Library decided to plan for an expanded series of virtual fall lectures focusing on history of medicine topics with relevant application to the current pandemic. Registrations and attendance hit an all-time high in comparison to Nixon Library in-person lectures given in recent years.
Each of the lectures listed below was recorded and can be viewed at: digitalarchive.uthscsa.edu/digital/collection/medicine/search/searchterm/HOM%20Lectures
