Consider just a few of the ways public health workers contribute to the well-being of our communities. Sanitarians and environmental health engineers make sure we have safe food to eat, clean water to drink, and fresh air to breathe. Emergency preparedness experts develop plans to keep us secure in the event of a natural disaster, disease outbreak, or other unthinkable situation. Public health physicians and nurses provide medical care to those without insurance. Health educators work to stem the tide of increasing health care costs by teaching the prevention and management of chronic diseases. Librarians and other information professionals put quality health information in the hands of those who need it.
We at the RML would like to thank you, our Network members, for all you do in support of public health. We encourage you get connected with other public health workers in your community. Find out what you can do to help meet their information needs.
