Allen College has received funding from the GMR for the second year in a row to expand the services of the Iowa Public Health Research Center. This unique project aims to address an information and library-services gap for unaffiliated public health professionals in the state.

The Iowa Public Health Research Center (IPHRC) provides access for public health departments across Iowa’s 99 counties to the Allen College library resources and librarian. Iowa public health departments are frequently understaffed and in need of research support and assistance. IPHRC aims to fill that void and support institutions as they work to implement evidence-based public health interventions.

In addition to the library services, IPHRC staff will provide regional training to public health workers. These workshops will demonstrate how IPHRC can support their work and showcase key resources from the National Library of Medicine.
