Programming notes: Lecture series season opener

Two programming notes:

One, Historical Collections & Archives will be closed Monday for Labor Day. True to form, Oregon's holiday weather is predicted to be rainy, so provided we don't all develop pneumonia while out desperately engaging in our favorite outdoor pursuits, we'll be back on Tuesday.

Two, a reminder that fall brings a return of the OHSU History of Medicine Society Lecture Series, and this year's opener is a short three weeks away. Mark your calendars and join us if you can for:

“Maladie Bleue: Major contributions in the history of congenital heart disease”
Guest speaker: Brian J. Morrison, M.D., FAAC, Cardiology Consultants, Pc.

Friday September 25, 2009
Public lecture: 12:15 p.m.
Refreshments served at noon
Location: OHSU Old Library Auditorium

Dr. Brian Morrison received his medical degree from the University of Illinois School of Medicine in 1987. He completed his internal medicine training at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, a fellowship of cardiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital at Harvard Medical School, and a senior clinical fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital. He spent a year at the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Center at the University of California at Los Angeles, serving as an instructor and staff physician. He joined Cardiology Consultants in Medford in 1998. Dr. Morrison also has an appointment as Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at OHSU. He specializes in pediatric and adult congenital heart disease and in acquired adult cardiac disease, and is an expert in transesophageal echocardiography and nuclear cardiology imaging techniques.

In addition to his interest in history, Dr. Morrison is an avid collector of rare and antiquarian medical books. He will be bringing some volumes from his private library to share with attendees after the presentation.

The lecture is free and open to the public. If you have a disability and need an accommodation to attend or participate in this event please contact Sara Piasecki (503-418-2287) at least five business days prior to the event.
