Pop-Up Exhibit: Reaching Out to Durham’s Hungry

The Museum of Durham History will host an outdoor exhibit of unique photographic portraits, Feeding Durham’s Hungry, beginning May 21 and running through June. Stop by 500 West Main Street in Durham to check it out.

HalfPicture

The origin of these imagesis a story in itself. Last summer, while volunteering to pack food for the Durham school lunch program, local photographer Rhonda Klevansky says she had hours to meditate on the difficulty facing members of our community to feed their families. She felt the need to draw attention to the food insecurity in our midst, which has existed before but has been exacerbated by the pandemic.

Instead of photographing the hungry, she decided to shine a light on the incredible work being done by ordinary people to get food for those who need it. She was fortunate to meet and photograph individuals who run food pantries, restaurant owners who provide free meals, bakers who give away bread, farmers, a cheese maker, people who deliver food boxes to the impoverished families, Duke students who take food to outpatients, and a young woman who is using the money she earns from dog walking to make healthy meals for the homeless.

A core exhibit of these inspiring photographswill be mounted on banners under the Museum’s gazebo. Other banners will hang from fences at Bull McCabe’s, Durham’s Central Park, and elsewhere around town.

There will also be photographs in the windows  the Durham Arts Council and 21c Hotel. To learn more, click the link to the right.

National Headache and Migraine Awareness Month

Everyone has a headache now and then, but not everyone with a headache has a headache disorder such as chronic migraine or cluster headaches.

Headache

Still, as the World Health Organization (WHO) points out, headache disorders are some of “the most common disorders of the nervous system.” The WHO says that 1 in 7 adults worldwide has migraines and that it can be 3 times more common in women than men.

June is National Migraine & Headache Awareness Month (MHAM), an opportunity to raise awareness about migraine and other headache diseases. Migraine impacts forty million people in the United States, one billion people across the globe, and is recognized as the #2 cause of disability worldwide. Currently, about 16 million people with migraine in the U.S. are undiagnosed. Approximately 400,000 Americans experience cluster headaches, recognized as one of the most painful diseases a person can have.

This year, MHAM is focused on A New Era of Care and the impact of COVID-19 on individuals with migraine and other headache diseases. Read more about the impact of the pandemic on headache and migraine sufferers here.

“There is currently no cure for migraine, but we are in a renaissance of new treatments, therapies, and approaches to managing the disease,” explained Wendy Bohmfalk, Chairperson of the MHAM Committee. “If you have been struggling in silence, now is the time to speak up, educate yourself, and seek care. You might just change your life.”
