Express Outreach Award 2008-09: Lunch and Learn Health Education Series

In this project, the ValleyCare Health Library will collaborate with the Regional Cancer Center and Diabetes Education Center, both affiliated with the ValleyCare Health System, to conduct a series of Lunch and Learn workshops, to be held throughout the year to promote the understanding of disease progression, treatment options and preventive measures for certain diseases selected from our needs assessment study. Programs will also include information on the ValleyCare Health Library's health resource services in order to improve consumers' access to health information and to publicize the availability of quality health resources at the library via PubMed and MedlinePlus. The overall project goal is to do outreach to consumers living with certain chronic diseases and offer opportunities for social and learning experiences they would not normally have access to, so they will be more empowered to make informed decisions about their health.
