Libraries as Partners in Health: Nashville Public Library

Posted by on August 5th, 2019 Posted in: Continuing Education, Public Libraries

Join us for the upcoming SEAside webinar Libraries as Partners in Health: Nashville Public Library.

Date: Tuesday August 27, 2019

Time: 1:00PM-2:00PM  ET

Description: Started in 2016, Be Well at NPL is a health and wellness initiative of Nashville Public Library that seeks to increase access to free wellness programming and health resources. Upon receiving an All of Us Research Program community engagement award in 2018, NPL augmented its health literacy activities by increasing the visibility of trusted health resources on the NPL website, through branch displays and programming and by offering health information literacy trainings to staff.

Participants of this webinar will have an increased understanding of how to:

  • Assess staff capacity related to health reference
  • Work with a local hospital or university medical library to provide a consumer health reference training to public library staff
  • Conduct a public program using the DigitalLearn.org module for “Online Health Information”

Presenter: Elizabeth Roth, MA coordinates the Be Well at NPL initiative at Nashville Public Library. She has close to a decade of experience managing the activities of public and private health grants, from providing HIV testing in night clubs to running clinic-based quality improvement programs. When establishing new community partnerships for NPL, Elizabeth loves hearing the health service sector exclaim, “I’ve never thought about doing this at the public library, but it makes so much sense!”

Registration is free and can be accessed at: http://bit.ly/2YMvg8h
