About this event

Dr. Lin will discuss the impact of mental health problems on Union and Confederate soldiers during the Civil War and examine associations between traumatic war experiences and subsequent physical and mental health problems through the lens of 19th century medical practice. Attendees will learn to identify the signs and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and and evaluate interventions to reduce the occurrence of psychiatric illness and deaths by suicide in armed conflicts from the 19th century to the present day.

Dr. Lin earned his undergraduate degree in History and Science from Harvard University and previously taught the elective course "Civil War Medicine in the Modern Age" to first-year students at Georgetown University School of Medicine.
