I am pleased to announce that the GMR has awarded funding to The Association of Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL) for a pre-conference focused health information services and programming.
ARSL will host the Stand Up for Health: Health and Wellness Services for Your Community as pre-conference sessions at their 2018 annual conference in Springfield Illinois. The preconference consists of 2 hours of pre-conference work, an eight-hour in-person preconference session, and 2 hours of post-conference work to provide 12 CE credits from the Medical Library Association (MLA). Participants who complete all the requirements will qualify for the Consumer Health Information Specialization from MLA. NNLM sponsors the $75 applications fee, and the specialization is good for 3 years.
The award provides ARSL with funding to offer scholarships to 50 attendees.
