Reflections on Big Data in Healthcare: Exploring Emerging Roles
In conclusion, librarians can become experts in the field of data science. There are several mechanisms that are already in place to assist us with learning these skill sets. Both NLM and MLA have a vast number of opportunities to learn more about data science and to participate in data science initiatives. As we create partnerships and collaborations, we will become more knowledgeable about the needs of our researchers. In addition, librarians must remember that we are life-long learning and we welcome a challenge. References Epstein, B. A. (2017).

Strength-Training Can Help Older Women With Aging
BOSTON (CBS) — Would you like to ward off the effects of aging? Strength-training may do the trick. Researchers from the University of Buffalo looked at 46 women over the age of sixty and found that older women who engage in a high level of daily physical activity may be able to reverse certain markers of aging, such as slow walking and decreased function. Resistance training, in particular, can preserve muscle strength and endurance, if started at a younger age. Many women said they stay active by doing light housekeeping or light gardening, and while that is better than nothing, it may not be enough to counteract t...
