GMR at ALA 2009: Welcome to Chicago!
For those of you attending the American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago this year, please be sure to stop by the GMR’s booth. We will be exhibiting for the National Library of Medicine, booth #3651. A handout of NN/LM presentations and presence at the Conference will be available at the booth.
In addition, in conjunction with our sister NN/LM region, the MidContinental, we are presenting a poster as part of the 2009 Diversity and Outreach Fair. The Diversity and Outreach Fair will take place from 3-5 p.m. on Saturday, July 11, at McCormick Place West in the Special Events Area, Level 3, Hall F2. The poster is entitled: Empowering Change Through Health Information Access.
On Sunday, July 12, GMR Consumer Health Coordinator, Samanthi Hewakapuge, will be part of the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA) Panel Presentation from 10:30-noon, Multicultural Outreach & Communication–Addressing the Information Needs of Asian/Pacific American Communities. You can also connect with Samanthi at the Diversity and Outreach Fair; she will be at the APALA booth from 3:00-4:00 pm on Saturday afternoon.
