From the GMR: Two New Traveling Banner Exhibits from NLM

The National Library of Medicine Exhibition Program is offering 2 new traveling banner exhibitions to libraries and community centers to borrow for 6 week bookings.

A Voyage to Health explores the recent revival of the ancient arts of navigation and voyaging of the people of Hawai'i. The exhibition explores this resurgence and its significance for health, well-being, and self-determination. Unlike our other traveling banner exhibitions, this show does not have an online exhibition to accompany the traveling show. But the story of traditional voyaging will be covered as part of the companion website for the National Library of Medicine's larger exhibition about Native peoples' concepts of health and illness, scheduled to open in October 2011. For information about the traveling banner exhibition, please visit: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/about/exhibition/travelingexhibitions/avoyagetohealth.html

Binding Wounds, Pushing Boundaries: African Americans in Civil War Medicine looks at the men and women who served as surgeons and nurses during the American Civil War and how their service pushed the boundaries of the role of African Americans in society. We do have a website for this exhibition, which can be found at: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/exhibition/bindingwounds/index.html.
