      History of Early Medicine in New Jersey

      Cayenne pepper enemas to treat lung diseases? Swallowing ground glass to treat gastrointestinal disorders? Chewing tree bark to shake the shivers?
      Each of these treatments was considered legitimate at the time, but did any of them work?
      Dr. Gary Grover knows the answers, and will share with you the results of years of research into early medical treatments and drug discoveries in New Jersey. The talk will be presented during the Hunterdon County Historical Society’s spring meeting on Sunday, March 15 at 2 p.m. at the Flemington Presbyterian Church, 10 East Main Street. The meeting is free, and everyone is welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served.
      A cardiovascular pharmacologist, Dr. Grover is a professor of pharmacology and toxicology at Rutgers Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy and a professor of cell biology at Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, N.J.
