Bullitt Club Lectures for 2008-9 Available Online

The Bullitt History of Medicine Club has completed its 2008-9 lecture series, and made the audio portion of each presentation available online as MP3s. The Bullitt Club sponsors a collaborative evening lecture series in conjunction with Duke University's Trent History of Medicine Society, with lectures alternating monthly between the two venues. The Bullitt Club also presents noon-time lectures in months when there is no evening lecture at UNC. The lineup for 2009-10 is currently being prepared, with the first lecture in the new academic year planned for September 2009.
