Time: 12 Noon ET
Presentation: How One Thing Led to Another
This presentation will describe how a simple request to borrow a white board from the Library ultimately resulted in a three credit hour continuing education class on disaster health information resources. The class is available free and online to anyone anywhere in the world.
Partnerships among the following organizations led to the success of this program: University of Miami Miller School of Medicine; the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County; the Medical Reserve Corps; National Network of Libraries of Medicine Southeastern/Atlantic Region; and the Disaster Information Management Research Center at the National Library of Medicine.
