On March 23, 1876, a group of eminent physicians gathered at the Union League Club in Philadelphia to honor Dr. Constantine Hering and to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of his earning of the degree of doctor of medicine. The testimonial to Dr. Hering offered affectionate congratulations, commending him as a revered and beloved colleague: “To his exceptional intellectual ability, untiring industry, broad culture and liberal spirit, Homeopathy preeminently owes her firm establishment and vigorous growth in America….”
It is significant that this event honoring Dr. Hering took place in Philadelphia, the city where he made his home and where he made a major impact on the establishment of medical education and the study and practice of homeopathy in the United States.
Dr. Hering is again being honored, this time by the National Center for Homeopathy and the City of Philadelphia. A Pennsylvania State Historical Marker, honoring Dr. Hering’s life and work, will be installed in early November, 2015 at the location of his home and office in Philadelphia, which is currently the site of the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Learn about Dr. Hering’s work in bringing homeopathy to North America through Philadelphia, what it ultimately led to in terms of Philadelphia’s prime position for not just homeopathic medical education historically, but it’s place as a lead medical education center today and about the historical marker that will be placed where thousands will see it on a daily basis, greatly raising awareness of homeopathy. A brief update of NCH’s current activities will also be provided.
