Women’s History Month Colloquium 2021: A virtual memory book

Cunningham Memorial Library’s Events Area is usually the venue for the annual Women’s History Month Colloquium (from Gender Studies and other sponsors)  and the Library shares photos of those events. With this year’s virtual Colloquium, Marsha Miller, Research and Instruction Librarian and member of the Library’s Marketing team, was able to attend all but one of the events and did screen-grabs to represent and record the event for posterity. Those, along with some of the graphic announcements, are shared here. Don’t forget to check out the 4 blog entries on Women and American Health Policy.

American Health Policy Research Project – Blog series (4 of 4)

American Health Policy Research Project

This special topic history course {HIST 313} looked at rules, regulations, policies and governmental functions and practices meant to reduce disease, promote health or to allow or promote the delivery of medical care. Students examined both public health policies and also policies that affect the provision of medical care, with a goal of understanding how the various complicated structures (physical, legal, political and professional) that the United States built in the past shape the American system of Health Care today. Each project relates to American health policies as they relate to women, as the presentations will be made available as part of Gender Studies’ Women’s History Month Colloquium events.

Each blog entry features posters created by the students. They are presented in the Library blog as a virtual poster session since in-person events are precluded under the strictures of Covid-19.
