National Autism Awareness Month 2017 seeks, as always, to promote autism awareness, autism acceptance and to draw attention to the tens of thousands facing an autism diagnosis each year. In addition, this year the focus is on the rest of us – ensuring acceptance and inclusion in schools and communities that results in true appreciation of the unique aspects of all people. We want to get one step closer to a society where those with ASDs are truly valued for their unique talents and gifts.
The National Patient Safety Foundation initiative to increase awareness about patient safety among health professionals and the public (because everyone is a patient at some point) is ongoing, but culminates in Patient Safety Awareness Week March 12-18. Health care consumers can get involved by spreading the word, advocating for patients that are friends and family, or sharing a memorial of someone who was harmed or died as a result of medical error. Health care professionals can advocate at their institutions and use campaign materials to educate colleagues.
The Center for Patient Safety also has a handy toolkit of templates and materials to use in the patient care facilities.
AccessMedicine (for UB HUBNET patrons) offers some links with related content:
Patient Safety Module – This is an interactive module that takes users through a series of courses with videos and questions covering the core competencies of patient safety.
Mind-altering drugs have been used throughout the history of America. While some remain socially acceptable, others are outlawed because of their toxic, and intoxicating, characteristics. These classifications have shifted at different times in history, and will continue to change. The six banner traveling exhibition Pick Your Poison: Intoxicating Pleasures & Medical Prescriptions explores the factors that have shaped the changing definitions of some of our most potent drugs, from medical miracle to social menace.
A “Digital Gallery” offering a selection of digitized, historical texts from the History of Medicine Division’s diverse collections can be found as part of the online version of the exhibition.
Stop by and view the six panels through March 18, 2017.
This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health and the National Museum of American History.

Little Bonnie was thrilled to have lots of loving hands to pet her during HSL’s Therapy Dog Days held Monday, Dec. 12, Tuesday Dec. 13, and Wednesday Dec. 14 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm on the lower level. If you didn’t have a chance to meet Bonnie, she’d like you to know she turns 15 years old today, Dec. 15!
Watch for our signs in the lobby in 2017 – therapy dogs will also be visiting HSL each month during the Spring semester.
