Hello, Michigan: We want you for POP!

Posted by on August 19th, 2021 Posted in: Blog

Region 6 Map with MI HighlightedThe Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) Region 6 office has extended the deadline for the new Partner Outreach Program (POP) for 2021-2026 from Network members in the state of Michigan. To extend our regional reach, we would like representation from all seven of our states in this exciting new program. Michigan Network members, we’d love to receive an application by 09 September 2021!

What is POP?
The purpose of the NNLM Region 6 Partner Outreach Program 2021-2026 is to support health equity by providing health information access throughout Region 6 by the formation and practice of the Partner Outreach Program (POP). POP objectives include the following:

  • Provide health information resources and training to underserved and underrepresented groups, including tribal communities and institutions, that are priority populations of the National Library of Medicine (NLM).
  • Act as ambassadors for NNLM services and resources, communicating health information needs to the RML, and work with the RML in remediation of those needs, whether through direct training or utilizing a train-the-trainer model.
  • Act as a field force in their state to identify potential partners for outreach.

Ambassador organizations will receive remuneration, training, and direction from the Region 6 office according to the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), a sample of which is available online. They will be reimbursed $300 or the negotiated hourly wage per outreach activity or event; printing, travel, and incidental expenses will be covered for a total annual combined budget of $1200.
