Hancock County, Maine: Healthy Acadia NNLM Outreach and Community Engagement Project - 2020-2021

Through the proposed project, Healthy Acadia will work across Hancock County, Maine to plan and conduct community engagement activities, centered on increasing access to and awareness of National Library of Medicine (NLM) resources. A primary focus of our work will be to increase health literacy for the general public through partnerships with public libraries, including recruiting local librarians to provide community workshops and one-on-one tutorials to increase knowledge and use of NLM online resources. We will reach additional community members by coordinating multiple educational programs, including virtual offerings, primarily in conjunction with current programs we offer to the public. Healthy Acadia will build on past successful NLM outreach efforts, deepening and broadening our engagement with community members throughout Hancock County.
