Café Scientifique: Rethinking the Place of History: Memoir, Memory, and Medicine
Brett L. Walker, a Montana University System Regents Professor in Montana State University’s Department of History and Philosophy in the College of Letters and Science, will discuss his life-altering diagnosis when he presents “Rethinking the Place of History: Memoir, Memory and Medicine” at the next Café Scientifique in Bozeman. The event is hosted by MSU’s Montana INBRE program and will take place at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, at The Baxter in downtown Bozeman. It is free and open to the public.
Walker will recount his 2010 emergency room visit for symptoms resembling influenza and pneumonia. When antibiotics didn’t resolve the illness, he saw a revolving door of medical specialists, each of whom asked some version of the same question: “Do you have a family history of illness?”
