Health Information for Public Librarians Symposium – Funding Available!

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) is offering stipends of up to $500 to support travel and lodging to attend the Health Information for Public Librarians Symposium taking place at this year’s Medical Library Association Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA. The Symposium will take place on May 22nd and 23rd. Stipends are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis with an emphasis on equal distribution across the nation. You must be working in a US-based public library and have an interest or role in providing health information to the public in order to qualify. For accepted applications, registration to the symposium will also be fully funded in addition to the $500. Attendees will learn about the All of Us Research Program, what others are doing to engage the public in health information, available resources for providing health information to patrons, and more. There will also be opportunities to network with other public and health librarians from across the country. Apply for a stipend online using our online application form. For first consideration, please apply by March 1, 2018. If you have any questions about the symposium or concerns about sufficient funding, please contact Veronica Leigh Milliner (Community Engagement Coordinator – NNLM MAR) at VLM38@pitt.edu.
