Tomorrow is the last day to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention‘s (CDC) Health is a Human Right: Race and Place in America exhibit. “This exhibition examines some historic challenges of the past 120 years in achieving health equity for all in the U.S. We know that “race and place” are as important as personal choices in achieving our full potential. People with low-incomes, minorities, and other socially disadvantaged populations face significant inequities in opportunity for optimal health. This can lead to inequities in health, along the lines of race, ethnicity, and place.”

Location:
1600 Clifton Road NE
Atlanta, GA 30329

Museum Hours
Thursday: 9am-7pm ET
