Posted by on March 26th, 2019 Posted in: All of Us, General

If you’re looking for an opportunity to create a community of health environment in your library, promoting the National Health Observances (NHOs) will do just that! The NHOs devote special days, weeks, and months to increase public awareness about important health and wellness issuesSupporting these observances can help educate and encourage healthy behaviors in your community. 

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) provides resources for public libraries that align with NHOs throughout the calendar year. Providing programming resources is one way that the NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network (CEN) supports communities with consumer health information and education in order to increase health literacy and raise awareness of the NIH All of Us Research Program

If you’re library is interested in supporting these observancesgo to the NNLM All of Us CEN website to find helpful guides and resources you can use today!
