Consumer Health Award: Charlevoix Health Information Project
The Consumer Health Award would allow the Charlevoix Public Library to extend its outreach efforts to more people in the community. It would allow the library to promote its medical web resources, establish a mobile training lab to take the training sessions to the consumers (senior citizens), and allow the library to train more health care professionals to use the web resources for and with their patients. By training library staff, the library will be able to offer reference assistance to patrons at the library. The ultimate result would be an expansion of consumer health information services in this rural community.
