      When talking to folks from another local museum, we came across an interesting question… What process should be followed when receiving medical records? In this case, boxes of medical records from the 20s to the 40s have been donated to the museum but there are people mentioned who are either still alive or their descendents are living. Obviously, no sensitive information would be shared, but we were wondering about the legality of collection.
