Free Distance Class: Spanish Health Information Resources

Do you have a growing Latino population in your community? Do you need to find health information in Spanish fast but don’t know where to look? Are the only words in your Spanish vocabulary burrito and gracias?

If you answered yes to these questions, then No Comprende? Spanish Health Information Resources for English Speaking Librarians is the class for you. This online course will cover resources for learning basic, library, medical, and Internet Spanish vocabulary. You will also learn to evaluate and identify health websites in Spanish to which you can direct your patrons.

Join Gail Kouame, Consumer Health Outreach Coordinator, and Nikki Dettmar, Education and Assessment Coordinator, for this free asynchronous online class starting September 24th and ending October 15th rescheduled for November 5 – 19, 2012. Upon completion of this course participants will earn 4 continuing education credit units from the Medical Library Association.

Priority will be given to participants from the Pacific Northwest Region (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington) with others admitted on a space-available basis. You will receive a personal email from the course instructor within several days of registering to confirm your place in the course. We look forward to having you join us!

    Is this class specifically for librarians? I have a physician from a community health center in the northwest who may be interested.
    Thanks,
