“For All The People: A Century of Citizen Action in Health Care Reform,” a traveling exhibition from the National Library of Medicine, is on display through March 24 at the Weise Gallery at the Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HS/HSL).
Health care reform has been a contentious political issue in the United States for more than a hundred years. From the beginning of the 20th century to today, citizens have made their voices heard in these debates. “For All the People” tells the lesser-known story of how movements of ordinary people helped shape the changing American health care system. The six-banner traveling exhibition highlights images from more than 100 years of citizen action for health care reform.
