Community Water Center and the water injustice issues of the Central Valley are currently being featured in the “Health is a Human Right: Race and Place in America” exhibit at the David J. Sencer CDC Museum, located at the Center for Disease Control Headquarters in Atlanta, GA. This exhibition looks back through history at how minority groups have experienced health problems differently and aims to educate the public on why these differences persist and what efforts currently exist to reduce and eliminate health disparities. In addition to viewing historic photographs, documents, and objects, visitors can check up on the health of their communities through interactive atlases. Videos, including one of Michelle Obama talking about access to fresh fruit and vegetables, are also integrated throughout.
The exhibition runs September 28, 2013 through January 17, 2013. If you are in Atlanta, we encourage you to stop by the exhibit and check out CWC’s artifacts, including: a bottle of Ducor’s water and an eroded pipe from Plainview. For photos on CWC’s display, please see here: http://fb.me/6vrKo8Lnk
Health Is a Human Right: Race and Place in America is organized and sponsored by the David J. Sencer CDC Museum, Office of the Director for Communication, and the Office of Minority Health and Health Equity, CDC; with additional support from The California Endowment through the CDC Foundation.
