Libraries and Community Health: Prescribing Programs that Support Your Community’s Needs
September 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
This webinar is designed to help librarians understand the role of public, academic, special or school libraries in advocating for and contributing to Community Health. While many libraries provide access to health information, targeted and refined programs can more effectively address communities’ needs, especially for under served and vulnerable populations. The presenter is a clinical librarian with extensive experience providing health information to vulnerable populations and partnering with public libraries and local organizations to enhance community health.
By the end of this webinar, the participant will be able to:
- Explain the role of libraries and library staff in community health
- Describe the steps required to assess their communities’ health needs
- Identify stakeholders and partners in community health initiatives
- Recognize opportunities and develop courses of action to enhance their communities’ health
