The next PNR Rendezvous webinar session will be focusing on the Public Library Association (PLA) health insurance education initiative. Libraries Connecting You to Coverage, is part of a national partnership made possible by funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Community Catalyst. This webinar will help public library staff better understand the importance of health insurance literacy, how to promote accurate health information and resources, and how to develop partnerships to advocate for a healthy community. In addition, two librarians will also provide their perspectives and tell us about their involvement with this PLA initiative.
