Updates to History of Medicine in Oregon website

Since its launch last fall, the History of Medicine in Oregon Project has continued to develop its Website into a dynamic resource for historians, health care professionals, and the public.

The project's steering committee will continue to develop the Website to support the documentation of Oregon medical history. Among the recent updates are a lively home page redesign, and improved organization of the site's Oregon medical history timeline and related resources. Future developments will include additional video content, and design features that emphasize the project's oral history interviews.
