Training Award: Linking Native Americans to Health Information: a project to train Com. Hlth. Reps.
Training Award: The staff of the Harley E. French Library of the Health Sciences seeks to defray the costs for traveling to train health professionals and Community Health Representatives (CHRs) on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in North Dakota, and to pay the CHR's, other community health workers, and the library staff to attend the sessions. The training sessions would be coordinated with two NLM Interns who are members of the Mandan, Hidatsa, & Arikara Nation, Richard Mayer and Deborah Thompson. The object of this training award is to assist them to inform the health professionals and CHRs on the Fort Berthold Indian reservation about the NLM databases and how they can use them in their daily activities. This request would supplement and expand the Consumer Health Subcontract NO1-LM-1-3513 awarded to the Library of the Health Sciences for the time period March 2002- August 2003.
