The Specialized Information Services Outreach and Special Populations Branch (OSPB) manages and develops programs to eliminate disparities in health information access. OSPB achieves their mission by providing community outreach support, by training health professionals on NLM’s health information databases, and by designing websites that discuss the concerns of various racial and ethnic groups.
As OSPB reimagines our NLM-OSP-L Listserv, we will continue to share NLM/NIH funding opportunities of interest to health professionals and public health workers dedicated to health information outreach.
NLM supports a wide variety of research-related programs:
For example, the NIH’s Resource Grants include Education Projects (R25). R25 codes indicate programs that promote an appreciation for and interest in biomedical research, provide additional training in specific areas, and/or to develop ways to disseminate scientific discovery into public health and community applications.
