Medical historians are calling for images, objects and other items of interest for a new ‘virtual museum’ that will house stories of rural Australia’s medical history.
Project leaders Associate Professor Louella McCarthy and Dr Kathryn Weston, from UOW's Graduate School of Medicine, are working with the rural communities around New South Wales that support the School’s dispersed teaching program to identify and collect medical stories and memories before they are lost.
