An effort is underway to create a central repository for The National Museum of Health and Medicine's digital collections, data archives and related computational resources at a new satellite location in Chicago. The National Museum of Health and Medicine Chicago will function as a bridge between the physical and virtual realms, featuring interactive exhibits where visitors can explore biomedical information in new ways and will act as a home for a team of information scientists who will advance the museum's research initiatives.
National Museum of Health & Medicine Foundation
The National Museum of Health and Medicine is a National Historic Landmark recognized for its ongoing value to the health of the military and to the nation. The National Museum of Health and Medicine Foundation has been created to serve as a not-for-profit partner, providing general support for museum operations as well as for more targeted projects in both the educational and research areas. A subsidiary of the Buonacorsi Foundation, the NMHM Foundation has as a major objective to drive the creation of a satellite of the NMHM in the Chicago area.
