State Advisory Groups will provide leadership guidance for Region 6’s outreach and engagement activities. Each state in Region 6 will have a State Advisory Group (SAG). The SAG will create a state action plan, which will guide how NNLM addresses health issues and disparities in the state. The SAG for each state will help develop recommendations, programs, and relationships.
Serving on a SAG presents a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration. We hope that each SAG will include a balance of members from public health organizations, healthcare professions, nonprofit organizations, faith-based groups, public libraries, academic libraries, and hospital libraries. Each SAG will include mix of people from a variety of roles, geographies within the state, and populations served. A focus of our work is to address health disparities, so if you work with an underserved population, you are especially encouraged to apply. Members of the SAG will be provided a $150 annual stipend.
Further details regarding the SAG can be found in the SAG Charter (PDF).
