Calling All Medical Librarians and Health Literacy Advocates

Posted by on September 17th, 2018 Posted in: Advocacy, Funding, Outreach

Would you like to be entered into a lottery to win FREE registration to a professional association annual conference of your choice? MLA 2019 in Chicago? ALA 2019 in DC? Another conference of interest?

October is Health Literacy Month as well as National Medical Librarians Month!

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!

The NNLM wants 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 will highlight as many of you as possible and can do it in a number of ways:

  • 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 (5 minutes or less) you create
  • Any creative method that can be featured on our blog and/or social media

Please feel free to use one of 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)
  4. What inspires me as a medical librarian or health literacy advocate

We are open to ideas that inspire you! Even if it’s not mentioned above, feel free to reach out and let us know what you’re thinking. It’s all about YOU!

Have we mentioned lately how much we appreciate you?

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 a professional association conference of their choice (up to $1,000).

  • The winner will be announced November 2018.
  • Eligible participants must be network members within the SEA region: AL, DC, FL, GA, MD, MS, NC, Puerto Rico, SC, TN, USVI, VA, WV.
