Instructors are able to show modifications for each pose and for general health concerns.

The Eskind Biomedical Library is proud to host "Opening Doors: Contemporary African American Academic Surgeons," a traveling exhibit from the National Library of Medicine. This exhibit celebrates the history of black surgeons and black medical institutions, as well as current and future trailblazers in the field.
As part of the exhibit, the EBL will be featuring black surgeons who have trained or practiced at Vanderbilt, including surgical technicians whose contributions have been overlooked. These men and women include Vivien Thomas, Andrew Manlove, Levi Watkins, Jr., Steve Stain, Christina Bailey Edwards, Keith Gray, Selwyn O. Rogers, Jr., Willie V. Melvin, III, and John H. Stewart, IV. Many of these pioneers and surgeons have already made their mark on history as technical innovators or chairs of surgery departments around the country. Others are innovators in their field and look forward to continuing long and productive academic careers.
The EBL is also proud to include images and artifacts on loan from the archives of Meharry Medical College, which was founded in 1876. The home of one of the nation's oldest and largest historically black medical schools, Meharry is also featured heavily in the NLM's traveling exhibit.
