Along with all of his other accomplishments, Harvey Cushing, M.D. was awarded the 1926 Pulitzer Prize for his biography of what famous physician?
William Daniels – most noted for his role as Mr. Feeny on Boy Meets World – has appeared in five medically-based television shows. Can you name them?
Participants in the History of Medicine Society’s Second Annual Trivia Night attempted to answer these questions and more! On January 14, 2015, Ally Hertz MSIV quizzed three teams on their knowledge of medical history and medical popular culture. Six rounds of questions, as well as a halftime bonus and a final question, challenged UT Health Science Center students, faculty, retired faculty, staff, and guests.
Using some creative strategies, the Green Team came from behind to triumph on the final question by putting four significant medical advancements in the correct chronological order. Congratulations to the members of the winning team: Adelita Cantu, Ph.D., Jack Flores MSII, Eithan Kotkowski MSII, Michael “Bo” Still MSII, Becky Still, and Lisa Matye Finnie, MLS!
