Donaghue TimelineWhat events would you like to add to our timeline?

As we prepare to update our website, we invite our Practically Speaking readers to suggest events in medical history or U.S. and world events to add to our website. The timeline begins mid-nineteenth century around the time of Patrick Donaghue’s birth. We developed the timeline to provide context through some of the more important developments in medicine and healthcare and in (mostly U.S.) cultural and political events to the decades in which the Donaghue family lived and the establishment of the foundation named for them. You can view the timeline at

Below is a link to a list of the events that are currently on the timeline. Please write us at to let us know what other events you think we should include on the timeline.
