Shots Felt ‘Round Montana- Film Showing
“Shots Felt ‘Round Montana,” is a joint project between Carter County Museum, Humanities Montana, and One Health. In 2020, Carter County Museum (Ekalaka, Mont.) designed and produced the exhibition “Shots Felt ‘Round the World: Maurice Hilleman and the Montana origins of the fight against pandemics” using collections donated to the Museum of the Rockies by the Hilleman family, along with Montana newspaper stories that describe contemporary accounts of infectious disease throughout Montana history.
The exhibit invites visitors to discover the process of scientific inquiry and vaccine development through the inspiring life of Dr. Maurice Hilleman, who was born in Miles City, and laid the foundation for the modern fight against pandemic disease.
During the exhibit tour in Blaine County Museum, Carter County Museum and One Health will host a film screening of the documentary “HILLEMAN: A Perilous Quest to Save the World’s Children” with a discussion panel featuring local healthcare providers at the Blaine County Library Conference Room from 2-4pm. This discussion series is also sponsored by Humanities Montana.
