Exhibition: Documenting Durham's Health History

November 21, 2019 - 4:30pm to November 22, 2019 - 3:30pm

Through maps, images, and video interviews, this exhibition examines the roots of health disparities in the "City of Medicine." It focuses on four case studies: tuberculosis before WWII, childbirth during hospital desegregation, HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980-90s, and the more recent rise of diabetes and obesity.

This exhibition is co-sponsored by the Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities & History of Medicine and the Medical Center Library & Archives. It is made possible by a Duke Bass Connections grant.
