Reading Recommendation: Shedding light on the history of phototherapy

Faculty Affiliate in Residence Keren Hammerschlag recommends:
Shedding light on the history of phototherapy, from the Wellcome Trust.

“In this video, my friend Tania Woloshyn, a Wellcome Fellow at the University of Warwick, considers the early history of light therapy through a series of striking photographs which she discovered in archives around England. These photographs tell a fascinating story of the medical engagement with natural and artificial light, and how light could be at once therapeutic and dangerous, essential to our wellbeing and a source of damage to be avoided.” —KH
