Health care reform has been a contentious political issue in the United States for more than a hundred years. Even after the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, which expanded access to health insurance coverage for millions of people, Americans continue to disagree on whether and how to make quality health care available to all.
From the beginning of the 20th century to today, citizens have made their voices heard in these debates. Health care reform is usually associated with presidents and national leaders, but this exhibition tells the lesser-known story of how movements of ordinary people helped shape the changing American health care system.
This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health. Curated by Beatrix Hoffman, PhD. View the exhibit and correctly answer this quiz to be entered in a raffle drawing.
