Last Chance to Register – Funding to attend Health Symposium for Public Librarians

Posted by on April 2nd, 2018 Posted in: Consumer Health, Funding

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) is offering stipends of up to $500 to support travel and lodging to attend the Health Information for Public Librarians Symposium taking place at this year’s Medical Library Association Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA. The Symposium will take place on May 22nd and 23rd.

Stipends are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis with an emphasis on equal distribution across the nation. Applications will be accepted while space is available. You must be working in a US-based public library and have an interest or role in providing health information to the public in order to qualify. For accepted applications, registration to the symposium will also be fully funded in addition to the $500.

Additionally, in an effort to support public librarians from our region, NNLM MAR will also purchase roundtrip airfare for attendees from our region (Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania). Please Note: If your application is accepted, NNLM-MAR staff will be in touch to coordinate airfare purchase.

Attendees will learn about the All of Us Research Program, what others are doing to engage the public in health information, available resources for providing health information to patrons, and more. There will also be opportunities to network with other public and health librarians from across the country.

Apply for a stipend online using our online application form. If you have any questions about the symposium or concerns about sufficient funding, please contact Veronica Leigh Milliner (All of Us Community Engagement Coordinator – NNLM MAR) at VLM38@pitt.edu.
