“Against the Odds”
is a traveling exhibit developed by the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. The exhibit panels highlight the ways in which communities are working to improve the quality of life in global settings. The six banners currently in the HSLC Atrium focus on the challenges and triumphs in areas such as food security, AIDS, conflict, disease, and discrimination. The exhibit runs until December 3, 2010.

“Health for All,” documents the work of nearly twenty faculty, staff, and students from UW – Madison’s global health community. The photos and narrative descriptions feature examples of community relationships, fieldwork, service projects, and clinical care in global environments. “Health for All” runs until December 30, 2010 in Ebling’s 3rd floor Galleries.
