Are you attending the Medical Library Association conference beginning next week? If you are, consider attending Advancing Health Equity through Evidence-Based Public Health: How to Find the Evidence, a continuing education session presented by our Health Professionals Outreach Specialist, Derek Johnson and Elaina Vitale, Academic Coordinator for the NNLM Middle Atlantic Region. There’s still room available in the session, and it’s not too late to register!

Be sure to stop by poster sessions presented by our team, Is Learning Actually Happening? Investigating Course Outcomes Beyond Traditional Evaluation, presented by Rachel Gatewood and Bobbi Newman, and Stand Up for Health: Health and Wellness Services for Your Community, presented by Bobbi Newman, Carolyn Martin, Consumer Health Coordinator for the NNLM Pacific Northwest Region and Margot Malachowski, Education and Outreach Coordinator for the New England Region. Also, check out a couple of presentations on projects funded by our office: A Health Sciences Library Empowering Community Health, presented by Tiffany Grant, Sharon Purtee, and Don Jason from the University of Cincinnati and Health Literacy of Refugee Populations, presented by Margaret Zimmerman from the University of Iowa School of Library and Information Science.

Stop by the National Library of Medicine booth in the exhibit hall, where you will have the opportunity to talk with our staff about the NNLM All of Us National Program, an activity led by Britt Thomas, our Community Engagement Center manager. Check out the promotional video Britt created about this opportunity!

While you’re networking at the meeting, look for our staff, including Sam Watson, Jacqueline Leskovec, Derek Johnson, Bobbi Newman, Darlene Kaskie, Linda Walton, and myself. Have something you’d like to chat about? Reach out to us in advance and set up a meeting at MLA with one of our team members.
