Consumer Health Outreach
The NNLM SEA is committed to providing consumers with resources to aid in advocating for their health. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions.
For 2016-2021, our priority groups for consumer health outreach include:
- Community Organizations
- Faith-Based Organizations
- Soldiers, Veterans and Military Families
Whether you are a health professional or work in a setting such as a medical library, public library, community/faith-based organization, public health setting or K-12 school, consumer health is a part of your work. NNLM SEA provides support for member outreach efforts surrounding consumer health. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has taken an increasingly prominent role in disseminating consumer health information by creating resources such as MedlinePlus, providing consumers with immediate access to authoritative information to help them research health-related questions and increase their understanding of health topics.
