NLM unveils new exhibit honoring John Eisenberg

A new exhibit is now on display outside the National Library of Medicine's History of Medicine Division reading room. "John Eisenberg: A Life In Service, 1946-2002" includes plaques, awards, photos, and documents. It is expected to be available for viewing for about 6 months. NLM also has papers by Dr. Eisenberg's in its regular collection that may be accessed.

John Eisenberg, M.D., former director of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, combined a unique sense of society and politics with clinical medicine to become a leader in the field of health services research. As a leader of institutions and mentor to scholars, he guided his field of expertise into a powerful force for understanding the economics of health care so that all Americans would receive quality, affordable, and safe medical services.

This exhibit is a tribute to Dr. Eisenberg and his many accomplishments. He died prematurely from a brain tumor in the Spring of 2002 at the age of 55.

The exhibit is located in the lobby of NLM, Building 38, 8600 Rockville Pike, at the south end of the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD.
