Promoting Consumer Health Materials at Remote Area Medical Clinics

SEA All of Us - Thu, 2019-12-19 14:55

Guest Post by the East Tennessee State University Quillen College of Medicine Library:

  • Emily C. Weyant, MSLIS
  • Nakia J. Woodward, MSIS
  • Rachel R. Walden, MLIS
  • Rick L. Wallace, MSLS
  • Kelly R. Loyd, MSIS

Remote Area Medical (RAM) clinics are held at various locations across the country. They provide a range of health services including dental, vision, and general medical care depending on clinic location. Librarians at East Tennessee State University (ETSU) have been working with organizers and volunteers at RAM clinics in Gray, TN and Wise, VA for many years.1 In 2019, ETSU librarians including including Rick Wallace, Rachel Walden, Nakia Woodward, Kelly Loyd, and Emily Weyant were able to continue work with these RAM clinics through the All of Us exhibit grant provided by the NNLM SEA region.

The RAM clinic held in November in Gray, TN, is close to ETSU and primarily serves the tri-cities area of Kingsport, Johnson City, and Bristol in east Tennessee. As this clinic is close to the ETSU medical school campus, medical librarians drive to the event and host an exhibit table there for each day of the clinic. The exhibit table includes handouts on various health conditions and topics as well as any small giveaways available through the university. For example, this year librarians were able to give away small first aid pouches and children’s books provided by ETSU. In addition to pre-printed handouts, librarians also provide on-site searching and the option to request mailed information.

The RAM clinic in June in Wise, VA, has historically been one of the largest RAM clinics in the country serving over 2,000 people.2 As the Wise RAM is a larger event that is further from the ETSU campus, librarians partner with event organizers and volunteers and provide consumer health handouts to be distributed by clinic volunteers. This information may be provided by mail sent directly to the customer, but is most often given via handout on location at the clinic. Librarians prepare handouts on common health conditions and concerns and mail them to volunteers at the Wise clinic along with a checklist option for patients to request different or more specific information.

Joshua Denny, M.D., M.S., Selected CEO of the NIH All of Us Research Program

PSR Latitudes All of Us - Tue, 2019-12-17 15:03

NIH Director Francis S. Collins has announced the selection of Joshua Denny, M.D., M.S., as Chief Executive Officer of the NIH All of Us Research Program. As CEO, he will oversee NIH’s efforts to build one of the largest and most comprehensive precision medicine research platforms in the world, in partnership with a diverse network of awardees and participants.

Dr. Denny comes to NIH from Nashville, TN, where he is a Professor in the Departments of Biomedical Informatics and Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He has been involved in All of Us from its inception, first as a member of the Advisory Committee to the (NIH) Director Precision Medicine Initiative Working Group, which developed the program’s scientific blueprint. He led the program’s initial prototyping project and is currently the principal investigator for the All of Us Data and Research Center. As a physician-scientist, Dr. Denny is deeply committed to improving patient care through the advancement of precision medicine. He will bring expertise in bioinformatics, genomics, and internal medicine, and significant prior experience with other large research efforts, including the Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) Network, the Pharmacogenomics Research Network (PGRN), and the Implementing Genomics in Practice (IGNITE) Network. He is an elected member of the National Academy of Medicine, the American College of Medical Informatics, and the American Society for Clinical Investigation.

In this position, Dr. Denny will work in close collaboration with All of Us Deputy Director Stephanie Devaney, Ph.D., who is being promoted to Chief Operating Officer; a new position in which she will assume additional responsibilities in leading the operations of the program and its extensive consortium of awardees and other partners. She will also continue to oversee the program’s policy work, serve as principal liaison to the Institutional Review Board and Trans-NIH Liaisons Coordinating Team, and provide expert counsel on key initiatives.

Eric Dishman, who currently leads All of Us, will become Chief Innovation Officer, leveraging his prior experience in Silicon Valley to guide strategic planning efforts and build a culture of innovation. This work will include creating a pipeline to support rapid delivery of exploratory projects for future development. He has brought tremendous vision and dedication to the program as its inaugural leader, and will continue to share his talents in this new role.

With more than 300,000 people already enrolled in the program, these changes represent the progression of the program to a fully empowered national flagship for biomedical research. Recruitment will continue to reach the goal of at least one million participants; additional genotype, electronic health record, wearable sensor, and environmental exposure data will be added to the unprecedented longitudinal dataset; and broad access to researchers will soon commence, guided by the most secure data system possible in order to protect participant confidentiality. Dr. Denny, Ms. Devaney, and Mr. Dishman have worked together on All of Us from the beginning and share a common devotion to its goals and core values. They are well equipped to lead the way forward to a new stage of scientific discovery.

Memory Café at Missoula Public Library honored at 2019 Montana Library Association Conference

PNR All of Us - Thu, 2019-12-12 20:00

Guest Post by Amanda Allpress, Senior Outreach Librarian, Missoula Public Library, Missoula, MT

Last year Missoula Public Library received an All of Us Community Health Outreach Award to continue the Memory Café program which was started with a previous grant from the Montana Geriatric Education Center. A Memory Café is a program designed as a social engagement for individuals experiencing memory loss. The goal of the library’s Memory Café is to create a safe, welcoming and supportive space for these individuals as well as their caregivers and family members. Research shows the importance of remaining social throughout the memory loss diagnosis and the café helps to achieve this goal. Once a month the library invites a guest to lead a discussion or activity with the participants. We also have a representative from Missoula Aging Services at each café available to answer questions and connect people with resources.

Participants of the Missoula Public Library Memory Cafe

Participants of the Missoula Public Library’s Memory Cafe pose with a motorcycle as part of their oldies music celebration.

Over the past year our attendance has more than doubled! This past month we had nearly 30 people attend a program with the Montana Astronomical Society about black holes. The speaker was very engaging and was able to keep the conversation going on a very scientific subject. Throughout the past 1.5 years we have had so many wonderful times with our Memory Café group. Some highlights include drumming with a local African drum instructor, a motorcycle photo shoot with live oldies music, a movement and creativity exercise with Turning the Wheel Missoula, and a discussion about homesteading with the Historical Museum at Fort Missoula.

One couple, who has been attending our Memory Café from its start, shared what the program means to them: “Walking into a Memory Cafe meeting for me is walking into a safe place – a calm place where I can relax.  No matter what Jim says or how often he says it, no one tries to sidle away from him or avoid him, and no one looks at him as if he is tainted in some way.  He is welcomed and encouraged, and he loves feeling as if what he is saying is valued.  For those few hours, I think he feels almost ‘normal’ again, and, especially when there are activities like drumming or the movement activities, he is able to focus outside of himself again.  For those two hours once a month, he is free to interact as he wants, and I am free to let him go.  I can just let Jim be Jim again, and that is priceless for both of us.” This program’s importance to all who attend is summed up so perfectly in this one couple’s experiences and it’s why the library will continue to offer such an experience for its patrons as long as it’s sustainable.

In addition to helping fund our Memory Café program, the All of Us Community Health Outreach Award helped us purchase six circulating activity kits designed for the purpose of spending one-on-one time with a person diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Activity directors at local senior care facilities have taken advantage of these kits to use on their memory care units and love the variety of different activities each kit offers: a game, puzzle, DVD, interactive book, fidget toy & activities book for caregivers. We were also able to purchase several Assistive Reading Devices ranging from very simple, e.g. a line bar, to very technical, e.g. a portable video magnifier. Just recently I wrote a small article for the local newspaper announcing these items and circulation is beginning to pick up. The hardest part is letting patrons know that the library has products like these to offer for checkout.

At each Memory Café program, we have made available resources from the NLM including handouts and bookmarks directly related to senior health and handouts with information on the NIH All of Us Research Program. In addition to announcing at cafes that the funds were provided by an All of Us Community Health Outreach award, during our session at the Montana Library Association conference, I informed attendees of opportunities for grant awards through the NNLM and also shared material with them on the NIH All of Us Research Program. In our catalog, the records for the books, activity kits and assistive reading devices include a note that the materials were made possible from the grant and in each of the books there is a thank you bookplate inside the front cover.

Our community has recognized the library’s efforts to include programming and provide materials and assistance to this group of individuals and has commended us for doing so. Beyond our local community, I had the honor of accepting an award on behalf of the Memory Café program at the 2019 Montana Library Association Conference for program of the year! After my experiences facilitating our Memory Café program, I would encourage all public libraries to offer memory specific programming. It’s fulfilling and important work and I know it is making a difference in people’s quality of life.

The NNLM Reading Club Honors World AIDS Day

SEA All of Us - Wed, 2019-12-04 11:16

The NNLM Reading Club is pleased to recognize World AIDS Day, celebrated each December 1st. Since World AIDS Day was first observed more than 30 years ago, scientific research has led to progress in preventing and treating HIV. Even so, today millions of people live with HIV and a cure is yet to be discovered. HIV remains a health threat because people don’t know the facts about how to protect themselves and others. And those who are HIV positive live with the trauma of stigma and discrimination. Knowledge about HIV may lead to taking action to prevent its spread and also help reduce the stigma of this disease so those living with HIV receive needed support.

To help spark an important conversation about HIV/AIDS, visit the NNLM Reading Club Book Selections and Health Resources: HIV/AIDS Health. Choose one of the three featured books, then download the discussion guide, promotional materials, and corresponding HIV/AIDS information. Short on time? We’ve got you covered!
