The NNLM MCR will be making available funding for the Public Library Programming Project Award. We will fund five awards up to $1,500 each.
The purpose of this award is to fund public library programming to increase the awareness of and education on health topics incorporating NLM and/or NNLM health information resources (e.g., MedlinePlus, Genetics Home Reference), relevant to their service community, with a particular focus on the public health priorities of their community and programs for underserved populations. Examples of programming projects include hosting a health fair, healthy cooking classes, mind/body programming (e.g., yoga, meditation), chronic illness self-management, and supporting health initiatives such as the All of Us Research Program.
The award will open January 12, 2018. Please visit the MCR funding page for more information and links. /da
