A National Library of Medicine traveling exhibit about AIDS history is on display in Founders Hall..

The OSU-CHS Medical Library is hosting the National Library of Medicine's traveling display, “Surviving and Thriving: Aids, Politics and Culture" in Founders Hall through Sept. 4.

The exhibit explores the rise of AIDS in the early 1980s and the evolving response to the epidemic over the last 30 years. By the late 1980s, the idea began to take root that people can live with AIDS rather than die from it.

The six-banner exhibit uses a variety of historic photographs and images of pamphlets and publications to illustrate how society responded to or failed to respond to HIV and AIDS.

The National Library of Medicine is part of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.
