The MLA Consumer Health Information Specialization (CHIS) offers training to librarians in providing health information services to consumers and recognizes them for the accomplishment of acquiring new health information skills.
By earning a CHIS, you develop the skills and knowledge needed to become a confident, expert provider of health information to your community. Your CHIS shows employers, colleagues, and the public you serve that you are committed to offering quality health information services. It also shows that you are staying current with developments in consumer health information resources, technologies and services.
In addition to earning your CHIS, NNLM will cover the CHIS application fee (a $75 value) for level 1 or level 2 and renewals.
