Health Is a Human Right [Race and Place in America]

http://webapps.library.gsu.edu/exhibits/files/original/4473c7da2290cb65046bc06ae028c0e9.jpg

Health Is a Human Right [Race and Place in America] is a repurposing by the Georgia State University (GSU) Library and the GSU School of Public Health of elements from the CDC’s David J. Sencer Museum’s 2014 exhibition.

This exhibition examines some historic challenges of the past 120 years in achieving health equity for all in the U.S. We know that “race and place” are as important as personal choices in achieving our full potential. People with low-incomes, minorities, and other socially disadvantaged populations face significant inequities in opportunity for optimal health. This can lead to inequities in health, along the lines of race, ethnicity, and place.

This exhibit is an evolving, on-going project with input, research and up-dates from GSU students and faculty as lesson plans and curriculum related to the exhibit content are developed and implemented.

The physical exhibit is housed at Georgia State University College of Law from June 12 through April 25, 2018. For more information about how to view the exhibit, visit http://publichealth.gsu.edu/health-exhibit

Grady Hospital School of Nursing

Introduction to the Exhibit 

The Grady Memorial Hospital School of Nursing, chartered in 1898, was the first nursing school in Georgia and served as a cornerstone to the education and training of nurses in the region and across the United States. In 1917 the Municipal Training School for Colored Nurses at Grady was chartered, providing nursing education to black nursing students; these two programs were integrated in September 1964. During its tenure of 84 years, the School trained over 4,000 nurses as it grew and developed along with the field of nursing education. You can access the Grady School of Nursing Collection Digital Collection online
