Grand Rounds "History Of Medicine In Africa"

CANCELLED.  Once a new date has been set up, we will update the calendar and webinar link. 

Please hold the date, Thursday, March 4th, at 12:00 pm, for an exciting Grand Rounds dicussion of "History Of Medicine In Africa" with Charles S. Finch, III, MD, Director of International Health at the Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM).

So much of what the modern Western world thinks of as science and civilization is presumed to have emanated from the ancient Greeks, and that includes medical science.  It is not necessary to denigrate the accomplishments of Greek science and civilization to insist that all the valid evidence concerning the source of that science and civilization points to the pre-Greek civilization of Kemit, known in modern times as Egypt.  Medicine, as we understand the term, begins in northeast Africa in the land of Kemit, literally “the black land”.

Charles S. Finch III was, until June 30, 2007, Director of International Health at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia.  From then on, until June, 2019, he worked as an E.R. and Primary Care Physician after which he retired after 43 years in clinical and academic medicine.

Having traveled to Africa 75 times, Dr. Finch has conducted independent studies in African antiquities, comparative religion, anthropology, and ancient science since 1971.  Since 1982, he has published more than a dozen articles, including The African Background to Medical Science and Science and Symbol in Egyptian Medicine.  His three books include:  The African Background to Medical Science, published by Karnak House (London) in November, 1990; Echoes of the Old Dark Land: Themes from the African Eden, published by Khenti Publications in August, 1991; The Star of Deep Beginnings: Genesis of African Science and Technology, published by Khenti Publications in February, 1998.

This event is sponsored by the Office of Health Sciences Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; The Department of Africana Studies, Dietrich School of Arts and Science; Department of History, and Africana Studies Program, University Center for International Studies.
