Want to take an active role in guiding the work of Region 6 in your state? Apply to join a State Advisory Group!

Posted by on July 14th, 2021 Posted in: Blog

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).

To apply, please fill out the online application. You can download a Word version of the application to fill out prior to submission, but you must fill out and submit the online application for consideration.

Applications will be accepted until the end of the day on September 7, 2021. If you have any questions, you can email us at Region6-rml@uiowa.edu.
