Health Care In The Borderlands of Southern Colorado

Visit southern Colorado and you’ll find a blend of cultures. That’s partly because the region belonged to Mexico up until 1848. When the border moved south people from many backgrounds intermingled, melding their traditions. A new exhibit at the Trinidad History Museum looks at how the shifting nature of the borderlands shaped health care there. History Colorado’s Dawn DiPrince helped develop the exhibit “Borderlands of Southern Colorado: Remedios, Medicine and Health.”  Listen to her talk about this unexpected history on the Colorado Matters podcast
