Healthy Libraries Visit
February 4 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm EST
The Healthy Libraries Program (HeLP)consists of students who are currently training in the fields of social work, public health, library science, and physician’s assistant, who will be onsite at the library to provide blood pressure screenings, and to answer questions and provide reliable, evidence based information on a wide variety of health topics such as heart disease, diabetes, understanding medications and much more. Students are also available to direct patrons to community resources, help fill out paperwork for social services, find housing resources, and assist with finding a healthcare provider and scheduling appointments. Additional students from the departments of dietary nutrition and health science librarianship are working offsite, to develop evidence-based resources to share with library patrons, in order to address their physical and mental healthcare needs.
