NIU’s Regional History Center will host a reception Thursday, Oct. 15, in conjunction with its current “The Doctor Will See You Now: The History of Medical Science in Northern Illinois Communities” exhibition.

Guests are welcome from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. to view the main exhibit in the foyer of Founders Memorial Library foyer and then continue upstairs to the Regional History Center in Room 400 for another small display.
