Come early or plan to stay after to see the exhibit! Health Is a Human Right: Race and Place in America http://www.cdc.gov/museum Museum Open to the Public from 9:00 am till 7:00 pm Monday through Friday
We encourage everyone to visit the current CDC museum exhibit before it ends on February the 28th. Brief Overview: HEALTH IS A HUMAN RIGHT: Race and Place in America is a compelling reflection on the historic conditions and social factors that have shaped health in the United States, and how they have been unequally experienced by Americans based on race, ethnicity, and economic disadvantage. Spanning th st the 20 and 21 centuries, the exhibition explores how, in addition to personal choice and behavior, the “social determinants of health” –where we live, learn, work, and play –have a significant health impact. It examines historic factors that have contributed to present-day health disparities, and highlights historic and current challenges, responses, and initiatives in our nation’s commitment to achieve health equity for all. The exhibition offers faces behind the data, with examples of stories of diverse groups to pursue their health as a basic human right. It tells the broader story of the social conditions that have contributed to health disparities, demonstrates the passion of communities that mobilized on behalf of their health, and reminds us that there are continued opportunities to make a difference in communities where risks for health disparities still exist.
