This course will provide an overview of ideas to conduct health outreach and create health programs for libraries and community/faith based organizations. Participants will learn how to integrate resources from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and other reputable agencies to introduce community members to NLM resources in fun and engaging ways. Examples of programs for children, teens, adults and seniors using NLM and other National Institutes of Health center and office resources will be shared.
Note: If you wish to attend both sessions (Beyond An Apple A Day: Providing Consumer Health Information At Your Library and ACE: Activate, Collaborate, and Educate: Health Outreach and Programming in Your Community), you must register for each session separately. There will be a break for lunch in between sessions.
