The Medical Library is hosting "Every Necessary Care and Attention: George Washington and Medicine", a National Library of Medicine traveling exhibit.

The exhibit will be on view in the Library's newly renovated lobby through April 24, 2015. Related books from the Medical Library's Special Collections are also on display in the new historical wall in the lobby.

This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health with the Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens
