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.

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.

ORCID is an acronym, short for Open Researcher and Contributor ID.
With a free ORCID iD, you can create a unique authoring fingerprint that will travel with you throughout your career. This personal identifier can link all of your research output and activities publications across multiple platforms. Over 2 million other researchers now possess ORCID iDs.
Do you have a common name or name variations? Your ORCID iD can link them all and identify YOU and your research. It helps distinguish you from authors with similar names when searching PubMed, Scopus, and other research databases. Publishers and funders are starting to require and may request your ORCID iD on publication submissions and grant applications.
“What would you say if we told you that humanity is currently making a collaborative effort to engineer the perfect superbug?” So begins this video that explains the “antibiotic apocalypse” in five minutes and 55 seconds of animation, suspense, and fascinating science.
Got a cold? Think twice before you reach for the amoxicillin – it won’t kill the virus, and only contributes to the evolution of superbugs.
