October is National Medical Librarians Month!
Cara Cadena at Missoula Public Library and Kim Granath at University of Montana for their “Health Info to Go!” project in Missoula, MT.
Theresa Percy and Carol Cahill of the Port Townsend Public Library for their project “Serving Up Resources for Healthy Eating” in Port Townsend, WA.
Laurel Egan, Marcia Francis, Dolores Judkins, Kathy Murray and Bob Pringle (PNR state emergency preparedness coordinators) who presented a series of webcasts about the “Ten Steps to Service Continuity”. The series culminated with a capstone webcast presented by Mary Beth Simiele, a librarian at Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle, WA, who has become deeply involved with emergency preparedness and response at her institution.
