Local physician to speak on the history of medicine in 20th-century Geneva

Retired Geneva physician Kamill Kovach will present a second lecture on the history of medicine in Geneva beginning at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 11 in the Geneva Historical Society's Prouty-Chew Museum, 543 S. Main St.

In December, he spoke about the 19th-century history of the practice. This second talk, free and open to the community, will focus on the 20th-century practice of medicine in the community.

Kovach was instrumental in the development of the current exhibit, “Medicine in Geneva,” and will share stories uncovered in the course of his research.

A native of Budapest, Hungary, he came to the United States in 1956 and received his medical training in the U.S. and abroad. He lived in Binghamton and Princeton, N.J., before moving to Geneva, where he was an internist with Finger Lakes Medical Associates until his retirement several years ago. He and his wife, Pim, live in Geneva.

Parking is available on South Main Street or in the Trinity Episcopal Church lot across the street. For more details, call (315) 789-5151.
