Coming Fall 2023
Medical History at the Lakehead
This exhibit will feature a timeline of the history of medicine at the Lakehead, with a specific focus on epidemics and pandemics that have swept through the region. Visitors will be able to learn about the various diseases and viruses that have affected people here, while also exploring the roles of Indigenous medicine, prominent doctors and hospitals, and how mass-scale world events, such as the World Wars, have affected public health. This exhibit has been guest-curated by Lakehead University students Emily Hunt and Haileigh Riddell in partnership with Thunder Bay Museum curatorial staff, and partially funded through the Information and Communications Technology Council Work Integrated Learning Digital grant.
