This year, in conjunction with the Congress theme "Circles of Conversation," scholars will present research on the broadly-defined histories of medicine, healing, health, and disease that explores conversations, debates, and dialogues on these themes at the local, provincial, national, and global levels. Papers and discussions will critically and creatively explore the relationships between historians of health, medicine, and nursing and the communities they influence and are influenced by. This year, CSHM and CAHN are pleased to announce that two internationally-renowned historians will deliver keynote addresses: Professor Warwick Anderson (The University of Sydney) will present the AMS Paterson Lecture in the history of medicine, and Professor Karen Nolte (University of Heidelberg) will deliver the AMS Hannah Lecture in the history of nursing. Researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, students, and the public are welcome to register and attend. We hope to see you at UBC!
