History of Hippocrates

February 20, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 12:00 am

Event Navigation

Dr. Norman Ferrari will lecture on the history of Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine and the Hippocratic oath. Hippocrates coined the term "primum non mocere" - first do no harm, and diagnosis and treatment being based upon observation. The presentation is part of the Pylon Medical History Lecture Series. Sculpted by the late Milton Horn, the pylons of WVU Health Sciences Center are an iconic representation of art, history, and education in the form of seven foot marble pillars. The originals are housed at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown. Replicas are displayed at WVU Charleston Division and in Martinsburg. The lecture series will discuss each scene of the pylon and its relationship to the history of medicine.
