Plattsburgh’s medical pioneer Dr. William Beaumont was declared by SUNY Plattsburgh, during the dedication of their Beaumont Building, to be one of the greatest physicians in world medical history for his study of the human digestive process.
Beaumont married, taught school, buried a son, aided War of 1812 soldiers, practiced medicine, and published his medical classic Experiment and Observations on the Gastric Juice and the Psychology of Digestion, all in Clinton County, NY.
Dr. Fedi, also a gastroenterologist, will tell the story of Beaumont struggles and successes which earned Beaumont his acclaim and provide insights into the unusual methods by which Beaumont added to scientific knowledge.
This program will begin at 6:30 pm, and will take place at the MHAB Life Skills Campus, 14 Dormitory Drive, in Plattsburgh. There will also be a zoom connection to the presentation which can be accessed by emailing email@example.com. For more information call (518) 561-0340.
