MAHWAH, N.J. — Ramapo College’s Program in Museum and Exhibition Studies and the School of Humanities and Global Studies are sponsoring a discussion, “Much May Be Done to Advance Science: Medicine in the Civil War and Ties to the Present,” on Monday, February 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the Adler Center Room 109 on the Mahwah campus. The event is free and open to the public.

The American Civil War has long been considered the “Medical Middle Ages.” In reality, surgeons made great strides in care and surgery, much of which is still used in hospitals and mass-casualty situations today. Guest speaker is Peter C. Miele, chief operating officer and director of education at Seminary Ridge Museum in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Miele, a Ramapo alumnus from the class of 2011, uses the medical lessons of the Civil War to teach students, professionals and the public about care, decision-making and innovations in the present and the future.
