New Approaches to Health and Wellness Library Programming: A MidContinental Region Webinar

Class Details

Many communities are embarking on health and wellness initiatives directed at controlling healthcare costs and preventing substance abuse. There is a role for libraries as the arbitrators of information to provide tools and education on health and wellness topics. Health information literacy is a facet of information literacy that is often not addressed through traditional library services. The presenters will introduce the audience to the trauma-based approach and resilience and explain how they utilized these approaches to inform their libraries’ programming. This presentation will provide ideas and resources that can be scaled for use at both large and small libraries of all types.

PRESENTER: Stacy Hisle-Chaudri, Library Director, Ray County Public Library and Mackenzie Ahlberg Elliot, Teen Community Programming
Specialist, Mid-Continent Public Library
