About the conference

“History Matters” for the current state and future of medicine. The Canadian Society for the History of Medicine (CSHM) meets from May 28 to May 30, 2016. It brings together historians of medicine, healthcare, and nursing and will feature two keynote lectures, one by prize winning scholar Dr. Elena Conis on the history of vaccination, a history of medicine exhibit in the Cumming School of Medicine alongside a program of compelling research presentations. Our Society is known for interdisciplinary research and discussion and we invite physicians, population health researchers, and health policy makers to share in the society’s proceedings.
