Join the NNLM Resource Picks webinar on Wednesday, January 31 from 3:00 – 4:00pm ET.
This session will feature Stephanie Morrison who is the Team Coordinator for the National Library of Medicine (NLM) resource, Genetics Home Reference. Genetics Home Reference is the NLM resource for consumer health information about health conditions that have a genetic component. The website provides a variety of authoritative information regarding health conditions including information about specific chromosomes and genes. Also, consumers will find resources that provide support, basics about genetics, information about genetic testing, as well as ethical considerations. Learn how to use this resource for your personal use and for the communities you serve.
NNLM Resource Picks is a collaborative effort by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine regional offices which features a National Library of Medicine resource at each session to increase awareness of these resources and to encourage their integration by libraries and other organizations to more fully serve their colleagues and communities. Learn more and register for this session. The free webinar will be recorded.
