A Geographically Focused Health Information Outreach Project

Zip code 75212 is an economically disadvantaged area of West Dallas. There are numerous organizations in this 11 square mile area that are trying to help residents. We can partner with several of these organizations to provide training on finding free authoritative health information. We have existing established relationships or have communicated with a community organization, a public library, a recreation center, and a church to provide health information services to 75212 residents. Our goal is to make a measureable difference in the ability to locate and use health information by the people that we connect with.
