Tour the Clendening History of Medicine Library and Museum that houses one of the country?s finest collections of books and artifacts related to the history of medicine. The library was built around the collection of rare books owned by Logan Clendening, M.D. (1884 - 1945), author of The Care and Feeding of Adults (1931) and a daily health column that appeared in 383 newspapers. The library has expanded to include nearly 30,000 texts. Artifacts in the museum include a birthing chair and surgical implements. Collections include letters from Florence Nightingale.

At noon, enjoy a catered lunch in the Atrium of the new School of Nursing building. After lunch, Deborah Powell, M.D., dean of the School of Medicine and Karen Miller, R.N., Ph.D., dean of the Schools of Nursing and Allied Health, will speak on the education of health care professionals in the 21st century. Michael Welch, M.D., Vice Chancellor for Research, will deliver an overview of the Kansas City Area Life Sciences Institute, a collaboration among research institutions to expand biomedical research in the area.

Be among the first to tour the recently opened Theo and Alfred M. Landon Center on Aging. Named for the former Kansas Governor and 1936 Republican presidential nominee and his wife, the Center on Aging develops and supports model health care services, translates research into cutting-edge clinical geriatric care and educates patients, families and students on the newest principles in the care of older adults. The facility includes a community resource center, elder law clinic, outpatient clinic, health education library and a human performance laboratory.
