Now on display: "For the Greater Good?"

Now on view in the BICC Main Library entrance, our new exhibit on public health:

Summer 2017 Exhibit:
OHSU Main Library, BICC Building 3rd floor

OHSU Historical Collections & Archives’ recent digital project, Public Health in Oregon: Discovering Historical Data, digitized and transcribed vital statistics on public health in Oregon. Improved access to and use of this data will inform current and future studies relating to public health in the state and around the globe. This exhibit examines the primary sources of the project, highlighting public health regulation of such concerns as communicable disease, food safety and sanitation, and eugenics at the turn of the twentieth century in Oregon.

The exhibit will be on display Summer 2017  in the OHSU Main Library, on the third floor of the Biomedical Information Communication Center (BICC) on OHSU’s Marquam Hill campus.
