Public health professionals mark your calendar for the second Wednesday of every other month from 2:00-2:45 PM ET (September, November, January, etc.). We hope you’ll join us to learn about topics such as data in community health assessment and finding emergency preparedness health information and more.

Every webinar in this series will offer .75 CECH for Certified Health Education Specialists!

This webinar series aims to fulfill NNLM’s mission through regular training on a range of health information topics relevant to the public health workforce.  This series will also address the 2014 Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals related to the need for a public health workforce that is competent in locating health information and using data resources.

Recap from July:

Introduction to Community Needs Assessment: Finding the Data, on July 8, with Dr. Robert Martiniano covered health information and data related to community health assessment, reasons for conducting a community health assessment, stakeholders, identifying data, locating primary and secondary sources, how to define a target community, and prioritizing and contextualizing your findings.

Coming up in September:

NER is happy to support the NNLM’s new Public Health Webinar series by hosting Grey Literature Resources to Support Emergency Preparedness, Response and Recovery on September 9 from 2-2:45 pm (ET).

September is National Preparedness Month. Join us to learn about Grey Literature and how it can be helpful during evolving situations.

What is Grey Literature? How do you find it? And how can it help during emergency preparedness, response and recovery? This session will introduce participants to the concept of Grey Literature, its uses and resources for finding it. This session will also include a live demonstration of one resource for finding Grey Literature related to emergency preparedness, response and recovery.


  • Define grey literature and list three examples.
  • List an example of a non-traditional source for grey literature.
  • Identify resources to search for grey literature.
  • Describe how grey literature can help during emergency preparedness, response and recovery phases.
