Did you miss any of the sessions or want to review them again or share them with your colleagues? The recordings are now available and you can still get the Medical Library Association (MLA) CE credits. Don’t forget a few of the sessions are eligible towards CHIS (Consumer Health Information Specialization).

The series provided a variety of topics for a variety of audiences. Though all of the sessions have great content and expert speakers you may find some are more research focused or for public health workers rather than the public itself. Keep in mind that they all address how environmental health impacts individual health especially for more vulnerable populations. Social determinants of health has a huge effect on our health and many times economics, politics, prejudice, make those decisions for us.

Want to learn more about environmental health and its impact on your communities? View the recordings and explore the accompanying guide to help you and your organization and library to inform and engage with your communities to work together in improving environmental health.
