September 18, 2014 • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Generic drugs are now familiar objects in clinics, drugstores, and households around the world. We like to think of these tablets, capsules, patches, and ointments as interchangeable with their brand-name counterparts: why pay more for the same? And yet they are not quite the same. They differ in price, in place of origin, in color, shape, and size, in the dyes, binders, fillers, and coatings used, and in a host of other ways. Claims of generic equivalence, as physician-historian Jeremy Greene reveals in this gripping narrative, are never based on being identical to the original drug in all respects, but in being the same in all ways that matter.

September 30, 2014 • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The NYAM Section on Anesthesiology is pleased to present the 2014 Anesthesiology Residents’ Night on September 30th, sponsored by the North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA).

October 2, 2014 • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

This lecture explores the widespread sense that American medicine was suffering from an “image crisis” in the decades from 1945 to 1965. Focusing on commentaries about the demise of “good old doc,” speaker Nancy Tomes looks at how that perception reflected broader postwar debates over political authority, personal service, and the status anxieties of the middle class male.
