Museum of Osteopathic Medicine receives grant

The Museum of Osteopathic Medicine and International Center for Osteopathic History have been awarded a grant.

The museum and international history center have been awarded a $6,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The grant goes towards hosting an emergency preparedness workshop.

The training workshop will be held at the museum and will be open to libraries, archives, and historical societies from the state of Missouri and surrounding states.

The program will help prepare participants to develop a disaster plan and demonstrate different salvaging techniques.

"In case there is a fire, flood, or tornado, the basic rules of what needs to be done with the collection, what you can do ahead of time to make it easier to clean up afterwards," said Debra Loguda Summers, Curator at A.T. Still University.

Other National Endowment of the Humanities awards were given to institutions and independent scholars in 43 states and the District of Columbia.
