Consumer Health Award: Birth Defects and Genetic Disorders Information Center
Consumer Health Award: The Ruth Lilly Medical Library of Indiana University will establish a Web site with selected annotated links to consumer level information on birth defects, including a directory of national and state referral sources. The Web site will also promote public health campaigns targeted to the high-risk pregnancy population. A core collection of materials for health professionals will be purchased and housed within the Lilly Library and an Information Center will be established to triage questions generated by the Web site. In collaboration with the Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Medical & Molecular Genetics, the Indiana State Department of Health Genetic Diseases program, the Indiana State Department of Health Newborn Screening Program, and the Indiana Chapter of the March of Dimes, the Lilly Library will address a significant health information need of the state of Indiana.
