The Virginia Historical Society and the MCV Foundation present an invitation-only lecture by the author Donald McRae entitled "Every Second Counts: The Extraordinary Race to Transplant the First Human Heart."
Fifty years ago, cutting-edge science intersected with human drama and changed the course of medical history. The Medical College of Virginia in Richmond was situated squarely in the path of the race to the first successful human heart transplant. And now, it's history.
