The October program will be a "members only" tour of Southern Illinois University School of Medicine's Pearson Medical Museum in Springfield, a museum that depicts the history of healing in the Mississippi River Basin. 

The museum includes a full-scale Depression-era drug store, a 19th century physician's office, an old fashioned dental chair and equipment, as well as an endless collection of medical artifacts. 

Tours will be lead by Phil Davis, Director of the museum and Research Associate Professor and Deputy Chair of the SIU School of Medicine's Department of Medical Humanities.   

Tours begin at 5:30 pm, divided into two groups.  The event also includes an on-going reception in the Dean's Lobby with seasonal treats that will allow time for members to socialize between the two tour groups.  Tours take approximately 40 minutes per group.

Although the event is free, pre-registration is required and can be made online or by phone, 525-1961.  Reservations must be made by Friday, October 12.  Last minute walk-ins cannot be accommodated for this event. 

The museum is located at 801 North Rutledge Street.  Please use the entrance on the north side of the building, near the flagpole.  Free parking is available adjacent to the site.
