Human Genetics Film Series for Public Libraries

The NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Center (CEC) has been awarded an amount of $181,857 to pilot a human genetics program-in-a-kit film series, in cooperation with the Iowa Institute of Human Genetics (IIHG), for public libraries. The NNLM will send approximately 250 film kits to small and rural libraries, in cooperation with the Association of Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL) and the Public Libraries Association (PLA). The purpose of this activity is to educate the public about human genetics, raise awareness of the NIH All of Us Research Program (All of Us) and encourage public libraries to become members of NNLM.
