Over the years, the WLM Board and staff have assisted many students, particularly those working on National History Day projects. Our goal in the coming year is to add some of those resources onto this site.
As noted by our WLM President, enthusiasm for the history of our specialty is alive and well. Three different middle school and junior high students presented anesthesia-related topics at the National History Day in June 2010 at the University of Maryland. The theme for this conference was “Innovation in History: Impact and Change.” These students placed first in their state, used our WLM resources for their projects, and consulted with anesthesiologists in developing their themes.
