AAHM Virtual Exhibit

Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the American Association for the History of Medicine.



Since we can’t be together at the conference, we’re bringing our book exhibit to you.

From virtually anywhere, you can browse our list of new and recent titles, chat with our editor Lucas Church, learn about our new books in our Studies in Social Medicine Series, and more.

Lucas Church, Acquisitions Editor

Meet Lucas Church:

“I do wish I could be talking to all the AAHM attendees in Ann Arbor right now instead of typing this from my computer at home. If you work on the intersections of race, health inequities, and social medicine, then I’d love to talk with you about your next book project. Contact me here, and stay healthy!”
