Surviving and Thriving: AIDS, Politics and Culture presents the stories of people with AIDS alongside those of others involved in the national AIDS crisis. The 6 panel exhibit, created by the National Library of Medicine, is in the HSL lobby, to the left of the main staircase.
Reactions to AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome), were as varied as the uncertainties about it. Early responders cared for the sick, fought homophobia, and promoted new practices to keep people healthy. Scientists and public health officials struggled to understand the disease and how it spread. Politicians remained largely silent until the epidemic became too big to ignore. Activists demanded that people with AIDS be part of the solution.
The title Surviving and Thriving comes from a book written in 1987 by and for people with AIDS that insisted people could live with AIDS, not just die from it. This exhibition presents their stories alongside those of others involved in the national AIDS crisis. Listen to them and consider the ever-changing relationship between science and society.

World Mental Health Day is observed every year on October 10th, to bring awareness to removing the stigma of asking for help when it is needed. The World Health Organization‘s theme this year is psychological first aid; learning the basic principles will help caregivers provide support to people in need, and, importantly, to know what not to say.
The 2nd edition of the Psychological First Aid Field Operations Guide and accompanying handouts are freely available through the National Child Traumatic Stress Network and the National Center for PTSD. The free mobile app is available from both iTunes and Google Play.
The investment in psychological first aid is part of a longer-term effort to ensure that anyone in acute distress due to a crisis is able to receive basic support, as well as additional advanced support from health, mental health and social services.
Fall semester is upon us – plan now for the help you’ll need to do your research and get those papers finished on time! The HSL schedule of workshops, including 6 sessions on EndNote for Health Sciences, is now available for registration. We offer many different days and times, so be sure to sign up for the one that fits your schedule.
No time to attend in person? Visit the HSL Tutorials page and learn at your own pace.
Welcome to HSL and South Campus!
There is a problem with the UB Active Directory which verifies UBITs. We are working with CIT but have not yet resolved the issue. We will continue to work on it until it is fixed.
NOTE: This does not affect those on the UB campus using an IP network connection (nor those at hospitals accessing their hospital menu of HUBNET resources).
Work-around for accessing UB HUBNET menu from offsite (e.g. home, office):
Go to the HUBNET Website Home Page —- http://hubnet.buffalo.edu
At the bottom of the left column, create an account (you must be offsite to do this). Create an account using your UBIT name and password and your UB email — select “University at Buffalo” from the “Affiliation” drop down box. You will then have access to the University HUBNET resources.
Work-around for accessing UB HUBNET menu from a HOSPITAL:
Open the HUBNET resource menu page. At the bottom of the left column, select link below “UB HUBNET menu available with UBIT login”. Create an account using your UBIT name and password and your UB email — select “University at Buffalo” from the “Affiliation” drop down box. You will then have access to the University HUBNET resources.
With the Zika virus now in Miami and the frequency of airline travel, make sure you know the latest. The Centers for Disease Control maintains a Global Health page, where users can get the latest and most reliable information about outbreaks, diseases & conditions, travel and programs.
The Zika Virus page has the latest data on spread, prevention, transmission, symptoms, fact sheets, Q&A, information especially for pregnant women, and resources. If you need to inform your patients or educate your classes, CDC also offers free Infographics for Zika and other global threats.
The National Library of Medicine also published Resource Guides for Zika Virus and the Flint, Michigan Water System, and have added Zika Virus and Zika Virus Infection as new subject headings, so they are now searchable in Medline and PubMed for citations indexed after 1/28/16. The page includes tips for effective PubMed searching for Zika.
