Healing After Dark

by Richard Shain Cohen

The moving story of the beginnings of compassionate medicine in America; the memoir of a Medical Pioneer, Morris A. Cohen, M.D. and his Boston Evening Clinic, the first "after-dark" healing center in the nation.

With recollections, introduction, epilogue, index by his son, Richard Shain Cohen, and edited by Richard Shain Cohen. Additional editing by Helen Compton.

Boton Evening Clinic

The story of the innovative founding of the BOSTON EVENING CLINIC was penned by Morris in 1968... it is presented now by his son, with many family background notes, photographs, and updates.

The whole story is here: the mission, the penury, the sacrifices, the resistance from the community and the medical establishment; the sponsors, the supporters, and the final success.

Anyone interested or involved in the struggle today to establish health care for all will find this history compelling.
