Leeches, Quacks and Lobotomies

« back to classes page
According to historian David Wooton, “For 2,400 years patients have believed that doctors were doing good; for 2,300 years they were wrong.”  How wrong? Crocodile dung for contraception; invisible worms causing tooth decay; mashed mouse poultices; ground glass for stomach ailments; lobotomies on demand.  Clutch your Medicare card gratefully and join us for a visit to the doctor that you hope never happens.  Feeling a little hysterical about this class?  That’s because you’re female and your uterus keeps wandering through your body.
