Health and Wellness Information Station

The primary goal of this project is to assist in the delivery of improved and discrete health information to the residents of Martha’s Vineyard. The project will provide funding to purchase a computer station with printing availability for patrons needing discrete medical information. This station will be located primarily in the West Tisbury Library Health and Wellness section of the Library for patrons to use with discretion. The computer will be programmed to provide information from vetted medical databases on such topical health issues as substance use, sexual assault, mental illness, dementia, nutrition, diet and exercise, Parkinson’s and tick-borne disease. The project will provide additional funding for purchase of materials related to health and wellness, including reference manuals and take home kits for patrons.
