Winkler Center

Postponed: Summer "Lunch and Learn" Talk

This event has been postponed. On Wednesday, Aug. 10, Cincinnati surgeon John Bossert, MD, and William Camm, MD, Class of 1977, both members of the Winkler Center’s advisory board, will lead a discussion while viewing portions of three surgical films of Mont Reid, MD, College of Medicine chair of surgery from 1932 until his death in 1943. The films will include “Cholecystectomy With Gallstones” (1935), “Toxic Thyroid and Cesarean Section” (1935) and “Ovarian Cyst and Inguinal Herniotomy” (1935). As the film is shown, Bossert and Camm will discuss methods used by Reid and how those methods differ from modern techniques. Additionally, they will elucidate on those portions of the films that show Reid’s true surgical genius.

A light lunch will be provided. The event will be recorded and made available through the WInkler Center's website.
