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.
Meet Lucas Church:
“Let’s hope this is the last AAHM where we don’t get to see each other in person, because I miss talking to all of you! 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 see you next year!”
All of our books (in fact, our entire site) are available now at our 40 percent AAHM conference discount. Plus if your order totals $75, domestic U.S. shipping is FREE! Just use promo code 01DAH40 at checkout.

Follow the links at the left for information on submitting a book proposal, ordering desk or examination copies (even free digital exam copies), classroom permissions, disability resources, and more. We’ve even created a handy FAQ document, with answers to the most-asked questions we get at exhibit booths.
Click on any book below to learn more. And, using our View Inside feature, you can leaf through the pages for a preview of each new book, just as if you were standing at our booth. Check it out on each book page.
