Connecting Verbena's Transform Health Project and Cultural Competency Trainings with NLM Resources

Verbena?s TRANSform Health Project works with transgender individuals and connects them to health resources. Verbena?s Cultural Competency Trainings educate health and human services providers on LGBTQ health and provide resources to them. This project will connect individuals with NLM resources within these two programs. First, transgender individuals will receive accurate information in two workshops about NLM library resources and how to effectively find accurate research and information on the internet. Second, a booth about internet resources and research will be included at a Transgender Health Fair as well as a workshop about how to utilize NLM research libraries in October, 2007. Third, more than 200 health care and human service providers will receive research and resources made available using NLM resources. Fourth, at least one cultural competency training will be offered to librarians within King County. Fifth, an accurate transgender health website with NLM resources and links to MedlinePlus,, and PubMed will be set up through the Verbena website.
