The National Library of Medicine produced For All the People: A Century of Citizen Action in Health Care Reform/Para todo el pueblo: Un siglo de acción ciudadana en la reforma de la atención de la salud, guest curated by historian and educator Beatrix Hoffman, PhD (Northern Illinois University). This bilingual, 12-banner exhibition is the counterpart to the English-only For All the People exhibition.

The traveling exhibition explores a history of health care reform, which has been a contentious political issue in the United States for more than a hundred years. Often, the public associates health care reform with presidents and national leaders, but communities, workers, activists, and health care professionals have made their voices heard in the debate about whether and how to make quality health care available to all. For All the People/Para todo el pueblo tells the lesser-known story of how movements of ordinary citizens helped shape the changing American health care system.

The National Library of Medicine produced this exhibition and companion website. For more information, please visit
