Health Education and Advocacy Through Health Ministers

This project envisions improving access to health information by training Health Ministers and clients in the use of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) website and resources. The partnering institutions wish to address the health concerns of the local communities. Together this partnership will train 100 Health Ministers to use and train others to use the NLM and other appropriate health information sources. The train-the-trainer model will be used to take the training throughout Western Pennsylvania. These same Health Ministers will help over 100 clients use health information from the NLM and other reputable health resources to make informed decisions about their own health.
