Funding Opportunity: The Network of the National Library of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region (NNLM MAR) invites applications to support health programming for public library patrons in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. The purpose of the Health Programming in Public Libraries Award is to fund health programs for public library patrons that incorporate MedlinePlus and information about the All of Us Research Program. Read the full Request for Proposals for more details.

Upcoming Webinar Series on Citizen Science in Academic Libraries: Join NNLM MAR for this two-part webinar series focused on bringing citizen science into academic libraries. Academic libraries can bring citizen science to the campus and to the community, whether through supporting the integration of citizen science into courses or by bridging the gaps between researchers, students, and community members. This series will introduce attendees to citizen science, provide tips and best practices for getting started and sustaining citizen science on campus (and virtually), and showcase resources that can be integrated into citizen science efforts.

Keeping Up With Routine Medical Care with My MedlinePlus: In the latest edition of the My MedlinePlus Newsletter you can learn about the importance of health checkups, how to start a conversation about mental health, being a safe driver, and more!

NIDA Request for Information: The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is the lead federal agency supporting research on drug use and its consequences. Their mission is to advance science on the causes and consequences of drug use and addiction and to apply that knowledge to improve individual and public health. In alignment with this mission, NIDA developed a draft outline for the FY 2021-2025 Strategic Plan to communicate a vision for advancing the Institute’s mission over the next five years. As part of the strategic planning process, NIDA has issued a Request for Information (RFI) for feedback on an initial outline of the plan, which includes both Scientific Goals and Cross-cutting themes.
