The Pascack Historical Society will shine a spotlight on local and international 19th century health care at its barrier-free museum, 19 Ridge Avenue, Park Ridge, on Sunday, February 16 at 2:00pm, when Michael Nevins, M.D., presents “Hysteria in Belle Epoque Paris”.
A retired Pascack Valley physician, Nevins recently published his eleventh book on subjects related to medical history. The latest, STILL MORE Meanderings in Medical History (iUniverse, 2013) is the last of a trilogy of collected essays – some sixty in all. Dr. Nevins will discuss a chapter in his new book, “Hysteria in Belle Epoque Paris.” Focusing on the 19th century French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot (1867-1936), he will explain how ideas about the nature of hysteria not only affected medical practice, but French and American culture as well.
A brief question and answer period will follow and several of Dr. Nevins’ books will be available for purchase. Complimentary coffee and cake will be served. Children are welcomed accompanied by an adult.
