Consumer Health for Central New York: An Outreach Project
This project will initially reach out to senior citizens in a four-county area in central New York State (Onondaga, Oneida, Madison and Herkimer Counties). The Central New York Library Resources Council (CLRC) will partner with the region?s YMCAs and local public libraries. CLRC will present programming that raises awareness of the many credible web sites available for the health information needs of seniors and families, with particular emphasis on those available through the National Library of Medicine (NLM). CLRC?s Medical Circuit Librarian will prepare a series of classes to introduce attendees to the resources and demonstrate how to use them effectively.
