Effective June 1, Emily Glenn is moving to Omaha, Nebraska for her new position as Liaison Librarian with the Education and Research Services team at the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s McGoogan Library of Medicine.
Since joining the NN/LM PNR as Community Health Outreach Coordinator, Emily helped to increase the visibility of National Library of Medicine (NLM) resources through paper and poster presentations, most recently presenting about HealthReach at the Northwest Regional African Immigrant Health Conference, and as pictured here, at the Alaska Public Health Association’s Annual Health Summit in Anchorage in January. She has delivered a number of courses on NLM and health information topics and resources, such as ClinicalTrails.gov, Public Health Information on the Web, Dazzling Data Visualization, and also served as a trainer to the Washington State Department of Health for the NN/LM Public Health Information Access Project. This spring, she facilitated the inaugural PNR Data Journal Club and then collaborated to develop a follow-on course using resources form the Using Data to Improve Clinical Patient Outcomes forum, of which she was a member of the planning committee. Emily has also taken the lead for emergency preparedness in the region by serving as a consultant and trainer for the Health Sciences Library’s Response and Recovery App in Washington (RRAIN) project and by coordinating the PNR’s first virtual tabletop exercise in disaster preparation, Getting Back to Normal.
Emily hopes to keep in close touch with her friends and colleagues in the Pacific Northwest Region. In fact, she will have boots on the ground in Washington this summer to climb Mt. Rainier!
Please join us in congratulating Emily as she embarks on her exciting and new direction!
