When you go to the doctor's, she will probably take your pulse, listen to your heart and take your temperature.  Did you know if you went to a doctor 2,000 years ago, your doctor would probably do the same things?  How do we know that?  A Greek doctor named Galen wrote it all down.  He gathered all the medical knowledge of the time and wrote it all down.  And then he went on to discover more and extended medical practice in his time.  As a matter of fact, doctors studied his work for 1,500 years to come.  His influence is still felt in medicine today.
SUBJECTS:     Galen.
