I have been conducting a history of medicine immersion program for medical students in collaboration with the Minnilusa Historical Association. This has been a wonderful partnership and a great experience for our students. I am especially thankful for Reid Riner's assistance with this program and we look forward to expanding this program for the future.

Minnilusa Historical Association does a wonderful job of maintaining pioneer museum artifacts and preserving the Black Hills' pioneer history! Also included in the collection are as many as 5,000 historical photographs, that have been converted to digital images, making it one of the best collections of historical photography in the state of South Dakota.
