Iron Lung Display
KLCH has the distinct honor to display our very own iron lung, nicknamed ‘Ol Iron Sides. It was donated to the Hertzler Research Foundation and has been a fixture of the Kansas Learning Center for Health for many years igniting the curiosity of our students while highlighting the intriguing treatment options for polio. Polio was an epidemic that largely affected the United States in the early 1950s puzzling doctors and the public for many years. Visit the museum today to find out more!
