Changes in 2021-2026 NNLM Cycle: The National Library of Medicine has issued the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for the NNLM. There are some big changes, including: 1) The number of regions will be reduced from eight (8) to seven (7). The current Middle Atlantic Region will be divided among Region 1 (Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia) and Region 7 (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont). 2) A name change: NNLM now stands for the Network of the National Library of Medicine. Additional information can be found in the NNLM Organizational Workbook.

Commemorating Juneteenth: Friday, June 19 is the annual celebration which commemorates the 1865 emancipation of the last enslaved African Americans in the Confederate States of America. Read NNLM MAR’s article, “African American Health and Anti-Racist Resources“, to find resources related to recent funded projects, African American mental health, cultural competency, NLM African American and race history, racism in science, and PubMed Central articles about police brutality and African American health. You can also visit the new online portal from the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) called Talking About Race, which is designed for individuals, families, and communities to explore issues of race, racism, and racial identity.
