The Augusta Museum of History has added a couple of new exhibits.

A Community That Heals exhibit opened Jan. 16 and chronicles 200 years of medicine in the area, said Rebekah Henry, marketing and membership manager for the museum.

"It's a stellar exhibit," she said. "It shows the way health care in Augusta and the CSRA has transformed over the years. It also focuses on the speciality areas that this area has been adept in providing.
