Learn about the link between health care and immigration from new exhibit at K-State Libraries
From Feb. 12 to March 23, K-State Libraries will host "Outside/Inside: Immigration, Migration and Health Care in the United States," a traveling exhibit produced by the National Library of Medicine.
The exhibit traces the history of ideas concerning immigrant and migrant health, along with their experiences with U.S. health care since the late 1800s. Health care and medicine greatly impacted immigrant communities in regard to their ability to include or exclude certain persons or groups. The images in the exhibit portray a history that reminds the viewer that protecting health and well-being is an important cornerstone of any community.
The exhibit will be installed and available for viewing on the second floor of Hale Library near the Dow Center for Multicultural and Community Studies.
