Making the information we gather accessible is our prime purpose. The Foundation has established a speaker’s bureau available to make presentations to interested groups.

We have initiated an effort by Lancaster County medical professionals to document and preserve the history of medical specialties and allied professional groups with a plan to publish. These individual projects include articles on the histories of Psychiatry, Neurology, Osteopathy, Dentistry and Opthalmology, to name just a few.

Please note that this section will include a series of articles on the History of Lancaster County's Medical Specialties and Allied Health Professions. We will also include books or essays written by local physicians and historians on topics of medical historical interest pertaining to Lancaster County. They will appear as they are received after being edited by our publication's committee.
