Description:

What is our responsibility to the well-being of others around the planet? This is one of the many pressing questions asked by this uniformly fine digital exhibit and interactive collection created by staff members at the National Library of Medicine. First-time visitors will want to click on over to the exhibit proper for starters. Here they will find the "Health for All" exhibit which takes users on a multimedia tour that explores how various stakeholders such as scientists, government officials, and others are working on issues like community health, disease prevention, and food security. Moving back to the site's homepage, visitors can take advantage of the "Online Activities & Resources" area which features lesson plans for educators and an interactive introduction to global health. The "Guest Column" area features interviews and discussions with community members who are working on global health issues, including Nobel Prize-winner Dr. Bernard Lown and Dr. Jack Geiger, who is one of the founders of Physicians for Social Responsibility. Finally, the "Get Involved" area gives visitors the chance to add their own perspective on such topics as disaster response strategies and access to antiretroviral drugs.
