Reminder: OHSU 125th anniversary exhibit at Oregon Historical Society

There's still plenty of time to visit Oregon Historical Society to view the exhibit "OHSU: 125 Years of Teaching, Healing, and Discovery."

"This exhibit begins to examine the complex history of Oregon Health & Science University. What began as a small medical school in Northwest Portland has evolved into a multi-faceted institution: an academic health center, a nationally prominent research center and a resource for Oregonians’ health.

Through historic photographs and artifacts, the exhibit explores the histories of the schools, programs, hospitals, and centers that comprise OHSU. Visitors will also discover many of the inventions and innovations that have emerged from OHSU faculty, alumni, and staff that have shaped health care delivery in Oregon and beyond."

The exhibit runs through July 8. Admission is free to Multnomah County residents.
