Congratulations to SEA’s April Wright and Liz Waltman for their presentation at OCLC's Library Futures Conference last week. Their presentations (featuring All of Us community engagement activity and #citeNLM) were recapped in American Libraries:

Collaborative partnerships
“Healthy Communities, Impactful Libraries” featured librarians from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) Southeastern/Atlantic region. April Wright, community engagement coordinator for the All of Us Research Program, discussed the important role of public and academic libraries in promoting health information. In Tennessee, Memphis Public Library and University of Tennessee Health Science Center partnered to create community health information centers in three branches, hosting health fairs, community discussions, and movie screenings. Nashville Public Library (NPL) and Vanderbilt University worked together to expand the library’s “Be Well at NPL” program, which includes movement-based programs, nutrition classes, and mindfulness and stress management workshops. Outreach, Education, and Communications Coordinator Liz Waltman explained how library professionals could participate in #CiteNLM Wikipedia edit-a-thons, events that help improve the already popular online resource with citations to trusted National Library of Medicine resources such as PubMed, MedlinePlus, and Genetics Home Reference.
