Against The Odds: Making a Difference in Global Health is a traveling exhibit that will be on view at the Bio-Medical Library from January 19-February 19, 2010. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Please consult this link for maps and directions to the library. This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.


As we learn more about the challenges of health through this exhibit, we join a growing community of people committed to global health. The Academic Health Center community has a strong history of collaboration, research, outreach, and action to make sure that health for all is a basic human right.

We invite you to explore the photos and stories of how students and faculty of the Academic Health Center schools and colleges are making a difference in global health.

The new Center for Global Health and Social Responsbility has been created at the University of Minnesota to advance health sciences research, learning, and engagement worldwide.
