Imagine taking a step back in time- over 100 years ago. Experience an era where the common street sounds were those of horses' hoofs on cobblestone streets, children playing in the gardens, merchants delivering milk and ice, and the wealthy gathering for grand galas in the evenings, dancing to live music. What is now known as the Rochester Academy of Medicine was one such mansion.
In 1938, the Lyons children donated the mansion to the Academy of Medicine. Today, the Academy gives back to the medical community through learning, service and collaboration in the communities that it serves. They do this by hosting programs, classes such as CME accreditation and lectures for their members who include healthcare professionals, medical students and scholars.
