The 2008 Regional History Symposium, Doctors, Disease, & Dying in the Pikes Peak Region, offers tales of the pioneers, traders, and military personnel who were both the purveyors and the recipients of needed care. The climate of the Pikes Peak region, the therapeutic mineral waters of Manitou Springs, and, most of all, the talented medical professionals who practiced in the region, all combined to make it a healthful place to live.
