AUGUST 2017

Asperger’s syndrome (AS) is one of a group of neurological disorders known as autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). People with AS exhibit three primary symptoms:

  • difficulty with social interaction
  • engaging in repetitive behavior
  • rigidity in thinking and a focus on rules and routines

Those who knew him described Thomas J. Jackson as taciturn, anti-social, odd, and eccentric.  Could those characteristics indicate that Stonewall Jackson, arguably one of the greatest military minds of the Civil War, lived with Asperger’s syndrome?

This month we welcome Dr. Don Marsh, a Fellow of the American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists (ASHP), and the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) who will discuss General Jackson, and whether Asperger’s Syndrome could have affected his decisions during the war.

Dr. Marsh has worked in academia, hospital pharmacy, community pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry.  He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy & Science in 1976, and completed a Residency in Hospital Pharmacy at the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.  He also received a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the Medical College of Virginia School of Pharmacy, Richmond, VA in 1982.

Don held a faculty position of Clinical Associate Professor of Pharmacy, at the University of North Carolina School of Pharmacy, and Clinical Associate Professor of Family Medicine, at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, Chapel Hill, NC.

Our speaker’s primary interests are in the areas of Infectious Diseases, Cardiology and Geriatrics, and the American Civil War.  He received a Master’s Degree in Civil War History through American Military University, part of the American Public University System, and has many papers on historical subjects.

We look forward to his presentation, and hope you will join us.
