I am requesting this award to enable me to attend the October 2017 joint annual conference of the Midwest Chapter of the Medical Library Association MLA and the Michigan Health Sciences Library Association MHSLA in Ypsilanti, Michigan. see http://midwestmla.org/conference2017/. I hope to take advantage of one of the continuing education courses, but my primary reason for attending is to pay attention to the preparation, organization, and execution of the meeting itself. In addition, I always find that conference attendance enhances my interest and enthusiasm for my career as a health information professional. I always return home with new professional connections, friends, and exciting ideas!
