Health care reform has been associated with presidents and national leaders, but communities, workers, activists, and health care professionals have made their voices heard in the debate about whether and how to make quality health care available to all. For All the People: A Century of Citizen Action in Health Care Reform tells the lesser-known story of how movements of ordinary citizens helped shape the changing American health care system.

The online exhibition features a range of resources for educators and students, including lesson plans developed by classroom teachers for middle and high school classes, and a higher education module developed by scholars working in the discipline for undergraduate and graduate students and instructors.

Beginning November 2015, For All the People: A Century of Citizen Action in Health Care Reform will be available as a traveling exhibition free of charge to interested libraries and cultural centers.
