Do you work with immigrants and refugees? Does your library or place of work include employees or patrons whose first language may not be English? Do you find yourself thinking you should look into cultural competency training but may not know where to look? This Wednesday join us for our PNR Rendezvous for an opportunity to learn about the National Library of Medicine resource called Health Reach.
HealthReach (https://healthreach.nlm.nih.gov) is a resource of quality multilingual, multicultural public health information for those working with or providing care to individuals with limited English proficiency. Resources include:
- Health education materials in various languages and formats (brochures, fact sheets, videos)
- Provider tools (including best practices, cultural information, and effective use of interpreters)
- Special collections on Emergency and Disaster, Women’s Health and Mental Health
