Funding Opportunity: The Network of the National Library of Medicine Pacific Southwest Region (NNLM PSR) is offering a professional development award dedicated to Library and Information Science (LIS) students who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color (BIPOC). The award will pair the student in an ALA-accredited program with a BIPOC librarian working in a health sciences position or providing health information. The award provides up to $2,000 for students to participate in meetings, conference sessions, conduct a research project, and other activities designed for them to learn the importance of health information outreach and services conducted by health sciences librarians. Read the recent blog post published by NNLM PSR about the award and visit the funding opportunity page to learn more.  Note: This award is open for all BIPOC LIS students nationwide.

Upcoming Webinar on Evidence-Based Public Health: Curious about evidence-based public health (EBPH) but not sure where to start? This class will explain the basics of evidence-based public health (EBPH) and highlight essentials of the EBPH process such as identifying the problem, forming a question, searching the literature, and evaluating the intervention. This webinar will take place on December 10 at 2:00 PM ET. Visit the class page for more details and to register.

Explore Inherited Diseases with the NNLM Reading Club: We inherit many things from the people who went before us – our physical characteristics, aspects of our personality and, sometimes, our health. December’s Reading Club selections discuss inherited diseases, focusing specifically on cystic fibrosis, sickle-cell disease, and cancer caused by the BRCA mutation. To learn more about these books and their authors – and to find related information from the National Library of Medicine and other authoritative sources – visit NNLM Reading Club’s Inherited Diseases page.
