Project Title: Shriners Hospitals for Children – Galveston Consumer Health Outreach Project
The Moody Medical Library at the University of Texas Medical Branch and the Shriners Hospitals for Children – Galveston (Shriners) will provide Internet access to Shriners’ pediatric burn patients, their caregivers and family members through a dedicated server, secure wireless system and multiple workstations. This will increase knowledge and use of currently available electronic health information and science education from NLM and NIH. In a “train the trainer” approach, project personnel will train Shriners’ staff in use of MedlinePlus and other NIH resources in English and Spanish.
Please join us in congratulating Anne Howard and the UTMB Moody Medical Library!
