A little-known fact about many of the Library’s Special Collections books is that they are gifts from our generous and thoughtful donors. Some were transported over great distances in route to the HSL. Such was the case this past August, when Dr. Wang Dongjin and his family hand-delivered a book from Changchun, Jilin Province, China for the Strauss-Wisneski Indigenous and Integrative Medicine Collection.
The book, The Medical Classic of the Yellow Emperor, is considered the oldest documentation of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice and theory, and was compiled over 2,000 years ago. The volume presented to the Library was a 2001 English-language translation published in Beijing by Foreign Language Press, and is a gift from David and Yueping Wang Stenger and the Wang Family. Mr. Stenger is a longstanding supporter of the Library and is a Professional Research Assistant with the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes.
The book is presently available on the Library’s New Books Shelf but will find a permanent home in the Strauss-Wisneski Collection in the Special Collections Room.
Donors of collection materials such as Mr. Stenger and the Wang Family are deeply appreciated for their commitment to the users of our collections. Their donations greatly diversify the collection and expand the scope and depth of our resources. Thank you, David and Family, and thank you to all our generous supporters!

A definition for population health is “the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group. The field of population health includes health outcomes, patterns of health determinants, and policies and interventions that link these to differences between groups of people.” 1/
The Population Health search strategy allows public health or health policy researchers begin a search. You can refine that search by adding specific topics to narrow the results. The NLM provides more information on refining the results and what terms are included in the search strategy.
