PLA and NNLM Teaming up to Raise Awareness of the National Institute of Health’s All of Us Research Program

Posted by on March 7th, 2019 Posted in: All of Us, News from NNLM, Public Libraries


The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) and the Public Library Association (PLA) have joined together to raise awareness and support of the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Research Program. The NNLM and PLA have worked together to increase health literacy through programming and consumer health information over the last couple of years. This new collaboration will support community engagement around All of Us by elevating the role of public libraries in locating reliable health information and creating connections through library spaces and technology. This partnership will provide health information training for public library staff, funding to support library health related programming and services, and connections to local medical libraries and community organizations.  Learn more about this partnership in the ALA News announcement.

NNLM’s collaboration with the NIH’s All of Us Research Program is called the NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Network. Learn more about this collaboration and how public libraries can participate.
