Medical Museum Science Cafe: United States Hospital Ships @ National Museum of Health and Medicine

Beginning in the American Civil War, the Army and Navy fitted out and manned hospital ships to support soldiers, sailors, and Marines fighting on both land and sea. Under international law, these ships enjoy non-combatant status, though this has not always kept them safe in bitterly fought wars. Join museum staff member and historian Steven Hill when he presents a brief history of United States hospital ships and the people who sailed on them: medical staff, sailing crew, and patients.

Join us for a session of guided meditation to start your day and to rejuvenate and restore at mid-day.

Two 30-minute mindfulness sessions will take place on the front lawn of the museum, at 8a.m. and 12p.m. You are welcome to bring a yoga mat or towel to sit on. Free and open to the public!
