HSLIC is thrilled to be hosting the traveling exhibit, Making a World of Difference: Stories about Global Health, from June 3, 2024 – July 13, 2024 on the Library’s 4th Floor. 

Created by the National Library of Medicine, this exhibit “examines stories of the people who are working on a wide range of issues—from community health to conflict, disease to discrimination—to improve health in their areas and beyond.”

Along with the exhibit, HSLIC is offering three educational programs:

Global Health Problems in New Mexico: Resources in HSLIC Special Collections. This online talk by Abbie Olivas, HSLIC Archivist, and Deborah Rhue, HSLIC Clinical Services Librarian, will explore archival resources in Special Collections that further our understanding of global health problems, such as diabetes, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and the plague. Thursday, June 6, 12pm via Zoom (register here). 

From Cowpox to COVID-19: The Histories, Landscapes, and People Who Have Shaped Public Health in New Mexico. Juliana Anastasoff, UNM Taos Peer Health Advocate, is a public health practitioner with a career book-ended by two global pandemics. In this online talk, she reflects on the connections and contributions from the Land of Enchantment to planetary health - in ways both known and unexpected. Wednesday, June 12, 11am via Zoom (register here).

Closing reception and talk, A World on the Move: Global Health Equity in the Context of Migration, by Dr. Laura Nellums, UNM Health Sciences Center Professor of Global Health. Dr. Nellums' particular expertise is in migrant, refugee, and ethnic minority health, and she has carried out mixed-methods research in infectious diseases, mental health, stressful life events, maternal and child health, and health policy and services. Refreshments will be served - no registration is required. Tuesday, July 9, 5pm-7pm in HSLIC Room 428.  

The exhibit and corresponding programing are free and open to community members.
