Consumer Health SAG

Focus

The Consumer Health SAG was formed to focus on improving health information literacy and increasing the ability for patients, family members, students and members of the general public to find and use health information by working through library staff at public libraries and schools, school nurses, K-12 health and science educators, and staff at community- and faith-based organizations.
