  • Historic Fort Snelling

Explore the history behind the patent medicine movement and its effects on modern medicine with Dr. Michael Torbenson. Patent medicines offered hope to many in the late 1800s and early 1900s, but quite often the medicines were mere fraud. Discover the stories of the purveyors of these medicines, their patients, and why patent medicines became so popular in this talk. A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
