Documenting Durham's Health History: An Exhibition

Join us for a reception and exhibition examining the roots of health disparities in the "City of Medicine."

How have racial health disparities in Durham been understood over the past century? To what extent have their structural roots been appreciated? What role has Duke Health played in this history?

This exhibit, supported by a Duke Bass Connections grant, explores these questions using maps, images, and video interviews. It focuses on four case studies: tuberculosis before WWII, childbirth during hospital desegregation, HIV, and the rise of diabetes and obesity in Durham today.
