Congratulations to Dr. Carmen Di Mare who correctly guessed the answer to our second “What in the World?” contest. (See April 15 posting.)
The items pictured are monaural stethoscopes. They were commonly used in the early 19th century. To learn more about early stethoscopes, take a look at this short video (@ 4 minutes), featuring our very own Christopher Hoolihan: www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfAWYLz7EEk
Dr. Di Mare currently is working in Public Health in Costa Rica. We think it’s pretty awesome that she’s following our blog from over 2,000 miles away! Dr. Di Mare has an M.D. from Costa Rica UACA University and an M.S. in Public Health from University of Rochester. Dr. Di Mare receives a prize from Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters.
Stay tuned for our next installment of “What in the World?”
