A cure for all ills: medicine in Bendigo

7 February - 10 August 2014

From chaotic beginnings to the formation of professional practice, the introduction of regulations against quackery and the establishment of long standing institutions such as Bendigo Hospital, A cure for all ills: medicine in Bendigo explored the social history surrounding the foundations of healthcare in Bendigo and the contribution of doctors, pharmacists, dentists, nurses and Chinese herbalists in providing essential health services to the community.


A full-colour exhibition catalogue is available from the Bendigo Art Gallery shop.
