Durham-Orange Medical Society News:

Register now for the December 9 DOCMS meeting, featuring author Francine Mary Netter.

Frank & Francine Netter

Location: University Tower, Durham
Reception begins at 6:00pm; Dinner and program begins at 6:30pm.

Join us as we thank Will Silver, MD for his service to the DOCMS during his year as President and as we install Kunal Mitra, MD as the 2016 President. In addition, our very special guest speaker is Francine Mary Netter, author of Medicine’s Michelangelo, a remarkable and first major biography of her father, renowned medical illustrator Frank H. Netter, MD. She captures the character of the man and tells his life story using not only her remembrances but also Frank Netter’s own autobiographical notes, personal correspondence and private files, publications of his work and public archives, and more than 100 interviews with family members, artists, distinguished practitioners and scientists. More than an account of his momentous career, Medicine’s Michelangelo provides a personal introduction to the man behind the art.

Register online now or contact Joy Avery for more information or to register via email.
