Community Engagement: Let's Get Health Wise

Design and delivery activities that will promote health literacy to three target groups: pre and school-age children, Rend Lake College students, and older adults that are members of the Learning in Retirement group and surrounding communities. Funds will be used to promote health information workshops, support health information literacy for students, staff and community members through a Health and Wellness Fair, and develop a health information site in the form of a virtual Library Guide that will facilitate access to library print materials, electronic databases, and select Internet resources such as PubMed, MedlinePlus, and ClinicalTrials.gov.
