Congratulations and Happy Retirement to Michelle Burda!

Michelle Burda

It is with mixed feelings that I announce the retirement of the Network of the National Library of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region (NNLM MAR) Education and Health Literacy Coordinator Michelle Burda. Michelle joined the NNLM MAR staff halfway through our first year as an RML in January 2012. Prior to that, she was a Consumer Health Librarian at UPMC Shadyside and Medical Library Director at UPMC St. Margaret. Throughout her career, she has been a tireless advocate for hospital librarians, patient educators and patients. She has developed and taught courses on health literacy and the opioid epidemic. She has built partnerships with libraries, faith-based groups, community-based organizations, and emergency responders throughout our region. She has been an active member of the Health Care Education Association and Medical Library Association. During times of staff transitions, she has been the ultimate pinch hitter – willing and able to present to any audience. She has been a wonderful colleague and friend to all of us at NNLM MAR and to many of you in the Network. We will miss her terribly but know you all join us in wishing her the happiest of retirements!
