"Disease’s in the District of Maine 1772-1820, the Unpublished Work of Jeremiah Barker, a Rural Physician in New England"

Dr. Richie Kahn’s book “Disease’s in the District of Maine 1772-1820, the Unpublished Work of Jeremiah Barker, a Rural Physician in New England” is to be released by Oxford University Press on July 30th
This engaging and insightful publication allows modern readers to reimagine medicine as practiced by a rural physician in New England. We know much about how elite physicians practiced 200 years ago, but very little about the daily practice of an ordinary rural doctor, attending the ordinary rural patient. 

• A rare and unpublished manuscript from 200 years ago with a full description of a rural medical practice, with emphasis on mental illness, epidemic disease, consumption, and more.

• Insight into the life of a rural physician, the diseases encountered, and the treatments that were available.
• Emphasis on medical literature: an unusual account of the difficulty of obtaining current medical literature, particularly of US origin, and of the importance of adding to it during a period of change.

The Maine Medical Association supplied a subvention allowing a lower cost for the book which is 30% off with code AMPROMD9 and below is the hyperlink to order. All royalties are going directly to the Maine Historical Society. 


Richie Kahn, MD, MACP will be at the Maine Medical Association’s Annual Meeting on September 18th at 4PM at the Harborside Inn and Marina, Bar Harbor, Maine. Dr. Kahn will present "Double Bicentennial: the Bicentennial of Maine Statehood", focusing on a physician practicing in Maine 200 years ago, and the bicentennial of the women’s suffrage movement and passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote (ratified 18 August 1920).
