This exhibit juxtaposes archival material from the Jewish Consumptives’ Relief Society (JCRS) with contemporary issues of healthcare access and equity. Each poster, curated by DU student, connects historical artifacts to contemporary organizations, individuals, and questions. By placing examples from the past and the present side by side, we hope to highlight the value of culturally sensitive care, celebrate successful institutions and leaders, and call attention to the work that is yet to be done.
