Have you heard of the National Library of Medicine Traveling Exhibits<https://www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/about/exhibition/index.html>?
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) creates traveling banner exhibits about the social and cultural history of science and medicine.  The Exhibition Program creates lively and informative exhibitions and educational resources that enhance awareness of and appreciation for the collections of the National Library of Medicine. These exhibitions and educational resources engage diverse audiences and explore a variety of topics in the history of medicine. NLM seeks to support host venues by presenting interesting stories that stimulate people's enthusiasm for history and encourage young people to consider careers in history, education, museum and the health professions. Each exhibit includes free online educational materials for the K-12 classroom as well as higher education. Many libraries across the country are hosting the Native Voices: Native Peoples' Concepts of Health and Illness through an arrangement between NLM and ALA over the next four years.  Other exhibits include:

  *   For All the People: A Century of Citizen Action in Health Care Reform
  *   Confronting Violence: Improving Women's Lives
  *   Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature
  *   Life and Limb: The Toll of the American Civil War

Come join us for the PNR Rendezvous this Wednesday April 20 at 1:00pm Pacific Time to hear about this wonderful resource that can benefit your institution and community.  The presentation will focus on Harry Potter's World: Renaissance Science, Magic and Medicine.  Learn how you can bring traveling exhibits to your community as a fun way to learn about health, science, literature, culture and history. No registration required.
