4/1/2020: Indianapolis Medical Society Bulletin Special Feature: Indiana Medical History Museum by Richard D. Feldman, MD, IMS Board Member, IMHM Board Member and Past President, Former Indiana State Health Commissioner
We're excited that we made this USA Today 10 Best list of must see quirky and unique museums in the United States! We're certainly unique....you won't find anything else like the Indiana Medical History Museum in the country! But stop by to see for yourself!
Voices from Central State was a Fall 2016 event series that spotlighted the patient perspective on life at Indiana's flagship mental institution, Central State Hospital (1848-1994). Click here for more information.
We're currently planning a continuation of the Voices project, an initiative to gather stories from people with connections to Central State Hospital, including former patients, workers, neighbors, and families.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Sarah Halter at email@example.com.
