All of Us Health Literacy Outreach Award: Pop-Up Library: Wellness Edition

The goal of the project is to is to reach teens and their families with educational resources about health information literacy, and raise awareness of the All of Us Research Program (joinallofus.org/nlm). The Pop-up Library: Wellness Edition will be offered to rural communities with small towns in Northern Idaho that lack the resources and infrastructure to expose teens and families to wellness resources, and skills to use them. The award will also provide an opportunity for an established outreach service to engage in the NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network (CEN) (https://nnlm.gov/all-of-us), and participate in the goals of the NNLM PNR All of Us Program. Health literacy skills training will be offered for 900 teens and their families in conjunction with monthly mindfulness events provided by the Pop-Up Library mobile bike and van, to address mental health issues associated with adverse childhood experiences. Teens and their families will learn about health life choices by engaging in mindfulness programs, discover ways technology can aid in a healthy lifestyle, and engage in followup wellness events at their local library with interactive sessions on mindfulness and MedlinePlus, as well as information about the All of Us Research Program (All of Us). The NNLM PNR Engagement Coordinator will provide training to Community Library Network Youth Services staff on MedlinePlus and All of Us and provide kits for distribution that will include All of Us materials, MedlinePlus bookmarks, instructions for how to raise awareness of All of Us, and guidelines for libraries to promote their event to local All of Us participants.
