Good Medicine

Good Medicine provides digital access to over 60,000 pages and images from 28 archival collections documenting Greensboro’s rich medical history, from church-housed hospitals during the Civil War to the arrival of the city’s first Catholic hospital, the development of nursing education programs, and the growth of large health care providers and pharmaceutical companies. Good Medicine also documents the contributions of Dr. Anna Gove (one of the first woman physicians in North Carolina) and Dr. Wesley Long during the World War I era. The project is a collaborative effort of UNCG University Libraries, the Cone Health Medical Library, the Greensboro History Museum Archives, and the Greensboro Public Library.
