Promoting Healthy Communities is a new nationwide initiative of the Public Library Association (PLA) and the NNLM to increase public library workers’ knowledge and skills related to consumer health services. Public library workers are invited to apply for a $500 stipend to attend "Stand Up for Health: Health and Wellness Services for Your Community," a preconference workshop to be held at the PLA 2018 Conference in Philadelphia. Attendees who participate in the workshop and complete some pre/post work will receive the Consumer Health Information Specialization (CHIS) certification offered by the Medical Library Association (MLA).
