This is a five part series from The National Library of Medicine, the world's largest medical library and a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The speakers and panelists addressed an audience of high school students on a variety of subjects related to careers is global health at the opening program for a new interactive exhibition, "Against the Odds: Making a Difference in Global Health" Wednesday, April 16th, on the NIH campus in Bethesda. "Against the Odds" presents stories as varied as the public health problems posed by Hurricane Katrina to a successful campaign for oral rehydration in Bangladesh, from "barefoot doctors" in China, to the model health center in South Africa, which inspired the community health center movement in the U.S. "Against the Odds" focuses on how individuals and communities, in collaboration with scientists, advocates, governments and international organizations, have made and are making a difference in the health of people around the globe.
