World War I caused millions of casualties on the battlefield. But advancements in medicine saved many more from dying. Practices and techniques that were put into place during “The Great War” evolved into the modern triage procedures practiced today. Learn about the evolution of medicine during World War I and how it changed the devastations of warfare when military historian Robert Dunn presents “Caring for Wounded.” Curator-led tours of the exhibit World War I: The War to End All Wars and wine and cheese are part of the evening. Adult tickets are $16; tickets for ND students are $11.50. Reservations required. Call (574) 235-9664, ext. 233 or go online at reservation.centerforhistory.org to reserve your ticket today.
