Pitching Public Health to Public Libraries: Finding Common Ground
As public health practice and public librarianship evolve to meet the current needs of communities, their goals and missions are converging, but we use different language. In this webinar, we’ll discuss how to find common ground, establish shared language, and identify how libraries and public health departments can work together to promote the health of their communities.
