Did you know that New Jersey spearheaded the discovery of antibiotics? Or that the Garden State had the first state hospital serving the mentally ill and the first community rescue squad? And did you know that close to a million people around the world can walk again, thanks to the New Jersey Knee? New Jersey is a small state that has played a big role in the history of medicine. Adrenalin, streptomycin, pure milk, tranquilizers, malaria control, cortisone, vitamins, revelations of radium's dangers - New Jersey's impressive contributions to American health have been on display in a major traveling exhibition, "A State of Health: New Jersey's Medical Heritage." By 2002, more than twelve sites throughout New Jersey and Philadelphia will have hosted this display. This catalogue to the exhibition celebrates more than four centuries of New Jersey medicine through original essays and 150-plus striking illustrations of artifacts, manuscripts, books, photographs, works of art, and postcards. Taking subjects of perennial interest - epidemics, children's health, public health, hospitals, and biomedical research - curator Karen Reeds explores the state's rich medical heritage and its unique place as the heart of the world's pharmaceutical industry. Engagingly written and handsomely produced, A State of Health: New Jersey's Medical Heritage is at once a lasting resource for students, teachers, and historians and the perfect gift to your favorite healthcare professional or local history buff.
