‘Confronting Violence: Improving Women’s Lives’ exhibit coming to Greenblatt Library

The National Library of Medicine’s traveling exhibition “Confronting Violence: Improving Women’s Lives” is coming to Augusta University.

Hosted in Greenblatt Library until June 22, the exhibition tells the story of reformers in social services and nurses who changed the medical profession and dramatically improved services to survivors of domestic violence in the late 20th century.

The exhibition will tie into Greenblatt Library’s History of the Health Sciences Lecture Series with a panel discussion regarding violence in women’s lives. The discussion will take place from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 13, in the Historical Collections and Archive room of Greenblatt.

Moderated by College of Nursing’s Dr. Beth NeSmith, the panel will feature Drs. Allison Foley, associate professor, and Melissa Powell-Williams, professor, from the Department of Social Sciences, with Dr. Mary Lou Davis from the Department of Biobehavioral Nursing.

Supported by the Office of Research on Women’s Health, the National Library of Medicine’s exhibition is free and open to the public. For more information about the exhibit, visit the Greenblatt Library’s online resources for supplemental tools and materials.
