CDU and King/Drew High School Health Professionals Partnership

The proposed project seeks to create an awareness of how to find and evaluate reliable health information on the Internet. The target population are students who are enrolled at King/Drew High School in one of the certification programs. A major concern is students are unsure as to where to find reliable health information, hence the need for library workshops. The primary emphasis of the library workshops will be to introduce students to reliable health information available from the National Library of Medicine and it affilates. Over the course of the project, students will demonstrate how to find, evaluate, and use reliable health information on the Internet.
