On April 14, NNLM staff, including those from the Pacific Southwest Region (PSR) and National Network Coordinating Office (NNCO), participated in Citizen Science Day activities in three (3) public libraries in Gilbert, Tempe, and Mesa, Arizona.

We were joined by Dan Stanton and Darlene Cavalier from Arizona State University (ASU). Darlene, founder of SciStarter, and Dan provided an overview of citizen science efforts at ASU and of their IMLS grant focusing on citizen science in public libraries.

We closed out the day by visiting an NIH All of Us Research Program enrollment site at a Walgreens Health Clinic in Glendale, AZ.
