This Month’s NNLM Learning Opportunities (August 2023)

Posted by on August 1st, 2023 Posted in: Blog

Here are two public health-related learning programs offered by our NNLM Regions and Offices.  See the NNLM Learning Calendar for a full list.

Participatory Community Building with Myanmar Refugee Women in Dallas, Texas

Doctor Chie Noyori-Corbett will present the process and findings of 5 stages of the community participatory research project and how public libraries worked with Myanmar refugee women resettling in Dallas.  Myanmar refugees in Dallas experience multiple challenges to their successful resettlement and consequent social integration.  American resettlement requirements specify that refugees become economically self-sufficient less than six months after their arrival, an ambitious goal that is hard to achieve for any refugee, especially women.  There was a serious need for an investigation of a successful resettlement through the eyes of Myanmar refugee women.

This session will provide an introduction to the current challenges around substance use, discuss factors present in strong rural recovery ecosystems, describe the recovery ecosystem index and how to use the mapping tool, and provide examples of recovery ecosystem supports implemented in eastern Kentucky.  The session will also include an overview of the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Recovery-to-Work Ecosystem Model (See course objectives and register)
