Calling All Medical Librarians and Health Literacy Advocates!

Posted by on August 23rd, 2018 Posted in: Outreach

Would you like to be entered into a lottery to win FREE registration to the MLA 2019 Annual Conference in Chicago, IL or the ALA 2019 Annual Conference in Washington, DC?

October is Health Literacy Month as well as National Medical Librarians Month! It is also National Pickled Peppers Month but we digress…

At the NNLM SEA office, we beam with pride about the many people in our region doing important work to boost health literacy and provide excellence in medical librarianship – We think the world needs to know more about you!

Will you allow us to feature you, your organization, and/or your passion for health literacy and medical librarianship in our SEA Currents blog and social media during the month of October? We want to highlight as many of you as possible and can do it any number of ways:

  • An article from an interview we conduct with you
  • An article from an interview you conduct with an inspiring person
  • An article you write on any related topic
  • An article you collaborate on with partners
  • Videos (60 seconds or less) you create shared via our social media – answering these prompts:


  1. Why it’s cool to be a medical librarian!
  2. Health literacy is…
  3. A Day in the Life (of a medical librarian or health literacy advocate)

We are open to ideas if you are inspired by something not mentioned above – Just reach out and let us know what you’re thinking. It’s all about YOU!

Have we mentioned lately how much we appreciate you? And, wow, have you been working out? 🙂

Thank you for all you do every day of the year – We appreciate you enormously and we’re excited to celebrate you in October!

Contact Nancy Patterson if you’re interested in participating: npatters@hshsl.umaryland.edu.

Each participant that submits an article or video will be entered in a raffle to win free registration to the MLA 2019 Annual Conference in Chicago, IL or ALA 2019 Annual Conference in Washington, DC!

  • The winner will be announced November 2018.
  • Eligible participants must be network members within the SEA region.
