Using National Library of Medicine Resources to Reduce Lead Poisoning in Children

The project will train approximately 100 caseworkers from three local organizations in Lancaster Country how to access the National Library of Medicine (NLM) resources for public health information and use materials developed from those NLM resources to improve the quality of the health information for the thousands of underserved families they reach over the course of a year. Lead poisoning will be the main topic covered and a handout for clients will be customized for each organization on this topic. The developed handouts will be translated into the five most spoken languages in Lancaster County, English, Spanish, Nepali, Burmese, and Arabic. The caseworkers will also be taught to research other critical public health topics using NLM websites.
