This exhibit explores the story of George Washington’s own health and examines the ways in which he sought to safeguard the health and wellness of those under his care. Washington’s story illuminates the broader context of the experience of illness and the practice of medicine, which during his time was transitioning from a traditional healer craft to a profession.

This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of health and George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate, Museum & Gardens.
