By Stephen Marine, Executive Director of the Winkler Center
The Advisory Board of the Henry R. Winkler Center for the History of the Health Professions recently welcomed three new members to its ranks.
- William B. Camm, M.D., Vice President and Corporate Medical Director at OneAmerica Financial Partners, Inc. in Indianapolis.
- Philip M. Diller MD, PhD, Chairman of Department of Family and Community Medicine, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
- Michael J. Gilligan, FACHE, CEO of Priority Consult, a medical software firm in Cincinnati, and until recently the long-time CEO of the Mayfield Clinic.
The Winkler Center Advisory Board assists the Center in fund raising and in promoting the Center as an international resource for medical and health history. The Board includes prominent members of the community who value the exceptional contributions of Cincinnatians to the history of medicine and the health professions from the early 1800s to the present day. John J. McDonough, MD, local hand surgeon and retired faculty member of the UC Department of Surgery, is the Board’s chairman. Henry R. Winkler, UC President Emeritus, is the Board’s vice-chairman.
The Center is the home of 35,000 rare medical books, 5,000 photographs, 2,000 historic medical instruments, but its greatest resources are the papers, archives, and oral histories of Cincinnati’s medical “giants” from the UC College of Medicine’s founder Daniel Drake to 20th century pioneers Albert B. Sabin and Henry J. Heimlich.
