New Leadership for Health Literacy COI
The Health Literacy Community of Interest is happy to announce our new leader, Margot Malachowski. Margot is the Outreach Librarian at Baystate Health, a teaching hospital in Springfield, MA. Her work is to assist patients, families and community members with finding reliable health information. She teaches classes at public libraries, schools and community centers. Margot worked in public libraries for many years before coming to Baystate Health in 2008. She currently serves on the Executive Board for Massachusetts Library System.
We congratulate our leader from year one, Caroline Marshall. And, wish her all the best with her new job at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles. As leader of the COI, Caroline presented and facilitated three webinars, published several e-newsletters, and co-presented with NER staff for a health literacy session for a resource library.
