Health Happens in Libraries: Health Information Resources for Library Staff

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

I recently attended this WebJunction webinar and wanted to pass on the information as it has been archived for future viewing.  Audio, chat slides and handouts are available at http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/health-information-resources-for-library-staff.html

****************************************************************************************************************

Public libraries provide a variety of health reference services and public programs to support community health literacy. Health literacy has been described by the Institute of Medicine as “the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions.” The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) provides comprehensive health information resources and services to libraries across eight regions nationwide. Join this WebJunction webinar to learn more about the health information resources available through the National Library of Medicine and the NN/LM. Representatives of the NN/LM Pacific Southwest Regional Medical Library will discuss their collaborative efforts with public libraries regarding the Affordable Care Act and other popular health information topics. They will be joined by a representative from Santa Ana Public Library, and together share strategies for strengthening your own library’s health information services, to improve the health literacy of your community.

Moderated by: WebJunction
