UOW medical historians Associate Professor Louella McCarthy and Associate Professor Kathryn Weston are working with rural communities around NSW to preserve the history of rural medicine, and are inviting community members to share their memories, stories and images of the history of medicine in Forbes.

These stories will be collected in an online museum that will both tell the history of rural medicine in NSW, and provide a place for the ongoing collection of sites, images and memories of medicine in rural Australia.
