The Archivist and Librarians in the History of the Health Sciences (ALHHS) and the Medical Museums Associations (MeMA) 2016 annual meeting will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota on April 27th and 28th, 2016. Minneapolis, and its Twin City, St. Paul, blend natural beauty and urban culture.  The 'Cities' are home to thousands of parks and natural attractions like Minnehaha Falls and the Mississippi River. These are set alongside nationally praised restaurants, world-class museums, and a vibrant music, arts and theater scene.

Join your colleagues for the one time each year we gather for networking and professional development. It's a crucial part of our profession to gather with peers, discuss ideas, and refresh yourself.

A wonderful Annual Meeting program has been planned for April 28th. Presentations include an integrated approach to historical medical audiovisuals, anthropodermic books, a panel discussion on digitization, and lightening talks on collaboration, new activities and inclusive history.  Our keynote speaker is Lucy Bruell, Division of Medical Humanities at NYU School of Medicine, and facilitator of  a weekly seminar on humanism in medicine. There are also tours of the Wangensteen Historical Library of Biology and Medicine, The Elmer L. Andersen Special Collections and Archives (don’t miss the storage caverns carved into the Mississippi river banks) and the Bakken Museum and Library.  For questions about the program, please contact Elisabeth Brander,  the Program Committee chair, at ebrander@wustl.edu  

Registration for the 2016 ALHHS/MeMA Annual Meeting, April 27th & 28th in Minneapolis, is now open.  The registration and payment deadline is Monday April  18th.
