Rural Health: Uncommon Challenges Met With Unwavering Spirit was the conference theme for the 21st annual conference of the Illinois Rural Health Association meeting held at the Keller Convention Center in Effingham, Illinois, April 27-29, 2010.

Southern Illinois School of Medicine Library exhibits the National Library of Medicine databases, such as MEDLINE/PubMed, MedlinePlus, TOXNET, the Household Products Database, NIH Senior Health, Multicultural Health Information, Wiser, etc. MedlinePlus Mobile was the hit of the year. People were placing the link, http://m.medlineplus.gov on their mobile devices and taking the I-Touch out of our hands with eagerness. The attendees were pleased to learn that it was not an app, but a website. They also found the ability to look up drug information while waiting for a prescription quite appealing.
