Health Statistics on the Web

Activate, Collaborate, and Educate: Health Outreach and Programming in Your Community

This presentation will provide an overview of ideas to conduct health outreach and create health programs for libraries and community/faith-based organizations.  Participants will learn how to integrate resources from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and other reputable agencies to introduce community members to NLM resources in fun and engaging ways.  Examples of programs for children, teens, adults, and seniors using NLM and other National Institutes of Health center and office resources will be shared.  To read more about this class, please go to: https://nnlm.gov/classes/program
