The exhibition travels through the past, present and future of health and medicine via several thematic areas. It presents heath as something to be treasured, pays tribute to the work of health professionals and scientific advances, and explores the ways in which citizens can have a level of responsibility for their own health.
As well as looking back at eras when healthcare was not so accessible as now, the exhibition also looks forward to the future of medicine, which is the part in which IBEC has contributed. The ‘Medicine of the Future’ section presents some of the various small-scale diagnostic devices developed at IBEC, as well as its research into areas such as nanocapsules for drug delivery, and the concept of personalised medicine.
The exhibition is open from 10:00 to 13:00 and 16:00 to 19:00 (Sundays and holidays 10:00 to 19:00) at the Museu d’Història de Sant Feliu de Guíxols, Plaça del Monestir s/n, 17220 Sant Feliu de Guíxols. For more information, visit the website at http://www.guixols.cat/museu/.
