Getting Better: 200 Years of Medicine

This 45-minute documentary explores three remarkable stories of medical progress that have taken place over the course of the long history of NEJM. In 1812, we had no understanding of infectious disease, surgery was unsanitary and performed without anesthesia, and cancer was unrecognized. Two centuries later, this film tells the story of research, clinical practice, and patient care, and of how we have continued to get better over the last 200 years.

  2. I dont believe any of us opospe President Obamas policies and procedures because or race, but do so simply because they are wrong for this country. Lets also remember that Obama is not actually the first black president. He is the first biracial president. I have a grandson who is one-half South Korean, but he is considered Caucasian, not Asian, as he would be under the theory used in describing Obamas race.Also a comment on ACORN.The organization still under suspicion for voter fraud. An example of the actions of that organization is Obamas winning the Iowa caucuses for his initial win toward the nomination. I have friends in southern Iowa who have acknowledged that several people attending their local caucuses were strangers to all of the local people in attendance, and admitted that they were brought in from Missouri to vote in the Iowa caucuses. Now that ACORN is going to be a partner in the 2010 Census, we can be certain that the liberal Democrats will be picking up in numbers. 0Was this answer helpful?
