Consumer Health Minute: BHIC blog

Posted by on May 20th, 2019 Posted in: Blog, Health Literacy/Consumer Health, Public Libraries

What is the BHIC blog? Bringing Health Information to the Community (BHIC) blog is hosted by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine with contributors from multiple NNLM regions. The goal is to send out health information directly to community members who may not otherwise have access to timely and useful information. Almost all of the information included in the BHIC blog is freely available. Various libraries, community organizations, educational institutions will find the information relevant and useful in these postings which include:

  • announcements of upcoming classes and webinars
  • funding and enrichment opportunities
  • resources including websites, toolkits, guides, reports, infographics, etc.
  • information about specific health conditions, highlighted national health observances

Consider subscribing to the blog and receive its email digest. Don’t worry, the BHIC blog does not post daily so you won’t get flooded with email notifications. You can also just check the blog when you want to check the newest postings or search the archive. To receive notifications of new postings please contact the BHIC editor, Robyn Woods at robynwoods@creighton.edu
