Medicine at the Margins: Black Excellence in Health and Wellness: Home

Dacus Library recognizes Black History Month and joins the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) in their 2022 Black History Month focus, "Black Health and Wellness." Dacus Library is pleased to share this exhibit and guide, "Medicine at the Margins: Black Excellence in Health and Wellness" with our campus and community. Within this guide, you'll find resources about the history and impact of Black people who determined their commitment to healthcare - from forming pathways to (formal and informal) education, and dynamic and enduring innovations, to community engagement and advocacy. You'll also see resources about the continuing challenges of access to healthcare and ongoing concerns about enduring economic, racial, sociopolitical, and systemic infrastructures and perceptions that hinder Black people's journey to improved physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being - and how people of note continue to work to reduce and eliminate these challenges, armed with the strength of their ancestors as well as the knowledge that the future will stand on their shoulders.
