Mending Broken Soldiers Presented by Guy Hasegawa, Pharm.D.
Dr. Hasegawa’s research into efforts to assist Civil War amputees led to the publication of his latest book, Mending Broken Soldiers-The Union and Confederate Programs to Supply Artificial Limbs, which explores the era’s innovative and intensely competitive limbs industry and wartime programs established in both North and South to supply prostheses to the thousands of soldiers and sailors returning home with an empty pant leg or empty sleeve. The lecture will include a brief Q&A session and an opportunity for the author to sign copies of his books.
