Adler Museum of Medicine in South Africa

Last week, we received the new issue of the Adler Museum of Medicine's Bulletin, which has articles on the Museum and South African medical history. It's a nice glossy publication and you can subscribe to it from their website. We send them our publication, Flesh and Bones, in exchange - it's a newsletter, not a journal, but comes out slightly more often.
