Brooklyn Public Library mini-museum explores the history and challenges of healthcare


A new mini-museum at the Brooklyn Public Library explores the foundations of healthcare and the challenges it sometimes faces.

MICRO is an organization that creates mini-museums and brings them to public spaces in the hopes of engaging the community in a conversation about science and the world. The “Care Museum” explores the challenges plaguing the healthcare system, while highlighting the skills needed to provide care today.

“It tells the story of our relationship with health care from the beginning of society until today, and how it relates to things like our human relationship with each other, our responsibilities to each other. the others, ”said Amanda Schockett, founder of MICRO.

The museum is part of an initiative with the Brooklyn Public Library’s Community Health Program to improve the health literacy of librarians.

“It is important that we are aware that our clients do not always put their health first, and therefore it makes sense that, since the library is a community hub, we offer the services to keep them healthy as well.” said Sarah Montrichard-Ramon Cabrera of the Brooklyn Public Library.

The museum will be in Brooklyn Public Library Prospect Heights until the end of the month, but it will also tour five boroughs. His next stop will be the Riverside Branch in Manhattan.
