About the film
The Raising of America will reframe the way we look at early child health and development. This ambitious documentary series by the producers of Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick? explores how a strong start for all our kids leads not only to better individual life course outcomes (learning, earning and physical and mental health) but also to a healthier, safer, better educated and more prosperous and equitable America.

Discussion Panelists
Resmiye Oral, MD, Director, Child Protection Program, Clinical Professor of Pediatrics-General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine
Renita Schmidt, PhD, Associate Professor, Teaching and Learning
Christine M. Catney, PharmD, MA, Clinical Assistant Professor, Applied Clinical Science

Happy National Library Week!

This year, National Library week is April 12-18, 2015 and National Library Assistants Day is April 14, 2015. This is a time to celebrate your local library personnel. Library staff members and student workers keep the library running by doing a wide variety of things like interlibrary loan, stack maintenance, circulation, etc. They also answer your questions.

To help celebrate, we’ve put up a display in Hardin Library with the names of all of the people that work here. We’re also hosting a little contest.

If you can guess how many questions were answered by Hardin Library staff members during April of 2014, you’ll be entered to win a fancy Hawkeye water bottled filled with candy.

Check out our display for details on how to enter this contest. The display can be found on the 3rd floor of Hardin Library to your left as you enter the building.
