Improving Health Literacy in Lawrence through Technology

This project would expand the Lawrence Public Library's ability to promote health literacy and access to reliable, authenticated health information, specifically from the National Library of Medicine and the All of Us Research Program. This funding would allow the purchase of two (2) interactive flat screens that will improve the delivery of health programming in a group setting and eight (8) Health kiosks installed in various library sections to provide residents personal access to high-quality NLM health resources. The addition of this technology will allow the library and community partners to promote the understanding of relevant community health issues.
