Hundreds of library patrons had an opportunity to learn about global health activities at UVM over the Spring semester. Kate Bright and librarian colleagues at the Dana Medical Library mounted an exhibit focused on global health initiatives with the enthusiastic help of faculty and students throughout the University.

Each of the four panels of the exhibit case highlighted a different global health project, and all panels rotated their displays midway through the semester. The College of Medicine Ebola mission to Liberia and the School of Nursing public health nursing programs in Uganda and Bangladesh opened the exhibit in January. These projects were closely followed by exhibit panels featuring global health research in Anthropology, Women’s Healthcare in Uganda and Tanzania, and Physical Therapy Down Under.

In addition, the exhibit provided the Library with a wonderful opportunity to display many of its new books on global health as well as to remind patrons of the availability of the Global Health database in its collection. The closing of the Library exhibit coincided quite nicely with a celebration of World Health Day on April 7, 2016.
