AoU Community Engagement 267 - Improving Health Information Literacy with the EVMS Library: A Hampton Roads Community Initiative
As one of the only medical schools in the nation founded by a grassroots effort from the local community, Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) is committed to addressing our community’s most pressing health needs through our educational, research, and clinical programs. The Edward E. Brickell Medical Sciences Library (EVMS Library) shares in this commitment and believes that an All of Us Community Engagement Project award aligns with our vision. This award would enable the EVMS Library to help increase our local community’s healthcare literacy and awareness by working with existing initiatives on campus and partnering with our public libraries. As part of this endeavor we would promote the importance of ongoing research such as the All of Us Research Program and encourage community members to use freely available NLM resources.
