Activate, Collaborate, and Educate: Health Outreach and Programming in Your Community

September 23, 2019 0 By Ronny Jaskolski


>>OKAY, EVERYBODY. THIS IS MICHAEL BALKENHOL AT THE NATIONAL NETWORK OF THE NATIONAL LIBRARIES OF MEDICINE THE HEALTH COORDINATOR. WELCOME TO ACTIVATE, COLLABORATE AND EDUCATE HEALTH PROGRAMMING IN YOUR COMMUNITY. A FEW HOUSEKEEPING ITEMS, ALL ATTENDEES ARE MUTED SO PLEASE ENTER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS AS QUESTIONS COME UP IN THE CHAT BOX WHICH IS OVER ON THE RIGHT. DURING THE NEXT HOUR I WILL ASK A FEW QUESTIONS SO PLEASE, FEEL FREE TO USE THE CHAT BOX AT ANY TIME. I MAY NOT ALWAYS KEEP AN EYE ON IT BUT I’LL TRY TO ASK EVERYONE’S QUESTIONS. A FULL RESOURCE LIST TO EVERYTHING WE’RE COVERING AND MORE IS AVAILABLE ON THE CLASS PAGE AND WE’LL DROP THAT LINK IN THE CHAT BOX PERIODICALLY THROUGH THE NEXT HOUR. BEFORE WE GET STARTED WITH CLASS A BIT OF A WORD ABOUT WHO WE ARE. YOU MAY BE FAMILIAR WITH THE ACRONYMS. SOME MAY BE CONFUSED OR WHERE WE ARE PLACED IN THE ORGANIZATION. THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH IS THE NATION’S LEADING RESEARCH AGENCY. MANY MAY BE MORE FAMILIAR WITH THE NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE WHICH IS ONE OF THE MANY INSTITUTES AND CENTERS AT NIH. THE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE IS ALSO AN INSTITUTE AT NIH. IT IS THE WORLD’S LARGEST BIOMEDICAL LIBRARY WHICH MAINTAINS AND MAKES AVAILABLE A VAST PRINT COLLECTION AND PRODUCES ELECTRONIC INFORMATION, RESOURCES LIKE MEDLINE PLUS AND PUBMED AND NNLM IS THE NATIONAL NETWORK OF LIBRARIES OF MEDICINE AND WE’RE AN OUTREACH PROGRAM OF THE NLM. THE NNLM IS MADE OF EIGHT GEOGRAPHIC REGIONS. I’M FROM THE MIDDLE ATLANTIC REGION WHICH SERVES PENNSYLVANIA, NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY, DELAWARE AND OUR OFFICE IS LOCATED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH’S HEALTH SCIENCE LIBRARY IN PITTSBURGH. AT NNLM OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE EQUAL ACCESS TO BIOMEDICAL INFORMATION TO HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AS WELL AS ACCESS TO QUALITY HEALTH INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC SO THEY’RE BETTER ABLE TO MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS ABOUT THEIR HEALTH. WE DO THIS THROUGH RESOURCES ON OUR WEBSITE, THE FUNDING OF PROJECTS, IN PERSON TRAININGS AND WEBINARS LIKE THIS ONE. IF YOU’RE NOT YET A MEMBER, PLEASE CONSIDER JOINING. MEMBERSHIP IS AT THE ORGANIZATIONAL LEVEL AND AS A LIAISON ORGANIZATION YOU’LL
BE LISTED IN OUR DIRECTORY. COMMUNITY ADVOCATES, NURSES, TEACHERS AND LIBRARIANS ARE TRUSTED WITHIN THEIR PUBLIC, FAMILY, SOCIAL CIRCLES AND AT WORK. THERE’S A WEALTH OF INACCURATE AND PREDATORY HEALTH INFORMATION ONLINE SO THE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE MAINTAINS MANY SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES TO SHARE OUR RESOURCES AND COMBAT DANGEROUS HEALTH INFORMATION. THERE ARE WAYS TO CONNECT WITH NLM, NIH AND NNLM CHOOSE THE RIGHT WAY FOR YOU INCLUDING TWITTER, FACEBOOK, PINTEREST OR BLOGS. AND A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR AGENDA FOR TODAY. FIRST WE’RE GOING TO COVER A QUICK INTRODUCTION TO HEALTH OUTREACH. BIG OUTREACH, SMALL OUTREACH, ALL KINDS AND HEALTH RESOURCES FROM THE NLM AND MEDLINE PLUS. WE’LL TALK ABOUT PARTNERSHIPS FOR HEALTH OUTREACH INCLUDING POSSIBLE PITFALLS AND THEN WE’LL GET IN THE FUN STUFF WHICH IS HEALTH PROGRAMMING IDEAS AND SOME SUCCESSFULLY FUNDED NNLM PROJECTS AND MORE AND THEN THERE’LL BE LOTS OF TIME FOR QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. SO FIRST OUTREACH. WE’LL TALK ABOUT THE WHY AND ASSESSMENT, DEVELOPMENT, PLANNING, MARKETING AND WHY BOTHER CONDUCTING HEALTH OUTREACH IN YOUR COMMUNITY. ONE WAY TO OFFER HEALTH OUTREACH IN YOUR COMMUNITY IS TODAY’S COMPLEX INFORMATION ENVIRONMENT WE HAVE A GREATER RESPONSIBILITY TO COMMUNICATE THE RESOURCES AND EXPERTISE THAT EXISTS IN OUR COMMUNITIES. LIBRARIES, COMMUNITY CENTERS AND FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS ARE HEAVILY UTILIZED WHEN SOMEONE HAS A QUESTION ON JUST ABOUT ANY TOPIC. THEY’RE OFTEN THE STARTING POINT FOR INFORMATION SEEKING ON A VARIETY OF TOPICS INCLUDING HEALTH. IT IS NECESSARY TO TARGET COMMUNITY CENTERS, LIBRARIES AND FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS IN A WAY COMMUNITY MEMBERS KNOW THEY CAN RELY ON THE RESOURCES LOCALLY. BY MARKETING YOUR LIBRARY, YOUR COMMUNITY RESOURCE YOU’LL LEARN TO MAINTAIN A LITTLE BIT MORE RELEVANCE, INCREASE YOUR VISIBILITY AND SHOW YOUR OVERALL VALUE. THE SAME COULD BE SAID FOR COMMUNITY AND FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS AS WELL. IF A HEALTH OUTREACH IS NEW TO YOU OR LIBRARY OR ORGANIZATION, IT MAY BE HELPFUL TO LOCATE INFORMATION ON YOUR COMMUNITY’S HEALTH NEEDS. NEXT WE’LL TALK ABOUT A FEW WEBSITES THAT CAN HELP YOU FIND HEALTH RESOURCES, HEALTH FACTORS, HEALTH COVERAGE, HEALTH STATUS AND THE USE OF PROVIDERS AND SERVICES. SO I AM A FIRM BELIEVER LIBRARIES AND ADVOCATES ARE IN TUNE TO THE NEEDS OF THEIR OF THEIR COMMUNITIES. BUT STEP ONE TO PLANNING HEALTH OUTREACH IS KNOWING WHERE TO FIND QUALITY STATISTICS TO BACK UP WHAT YOU MAY ALREADY FEEL ABOUT YOUR COMMUNITY. THIS IS A SENSE OF KNOWING SOMETHING AND GRANT MAKERS LIKE NNLM REQUIRE JUSTIFICATION FOR THE WORK YOU WANT TO TAKE IF YOU ARE SEEKING FUNDING. THE FIRST WEBSITE THE STATE HEALTH FACTS PROVIDES FREE UP TO DATE AND EASY TO USE HEALTH DATA FOR ALL 50 STATES, THE DISTRICT OF COLOMBIA AND OTHER GEOGRAPHIES AND DATA AVAILABLE ON THE STATE HEALTH FACTS COME FROM A WADE VARIETY OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE RESOURCES INCLUDING THE KAISER FAMILY FOUNDATION REPORTS, PUBLIC WEB SITES, GOVERNMENT REPORTS AND PRIVATE ORGANIZATIONS. THIS RESOURCE FOCUSES ON PROVIDING INFORMATION AT THE STATE LEVEL ON ALL THE CATEGORIES WE SEE LISTED HERE. IF YOU WANT INFORMATION ON DIABETES YOU CAN GET INFORMATION SUCH AS THE PERCENTAGE OF ADULTS WHO HAVE BEEN TOLD BY A DOCTOR THEY HAVE DIABETES. THE SECOND RESOURCE AS FAR AS HEALTH GOES IS THE COUNTY HEALTH RANKINGS AND ROAD MAPS WHICH IS A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT BETWEEN THE ROBERT JOHNSON FOUNDATION AND UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN HEALTH POPULATION INSTITUTE. IT MEASURES VITAL FACTORS INCLUDING HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION RATES, OBESITY, SMOKING, UNEMPLOYMENT, ACCESS TO HEALTHY FOODS, QUALITY OF CARE AND WATER, INCOME, TEEN BIRTHS IN NEARLY EVERY COUNTY IN AMERICA. THE ANNUAL RANKINGS PROVIDE A REVEALING SNAPSHOT OF HOW HEALTH IS INFLUENCED BY WHERE WE LIVE, WHERE WE LEARN, WHERE WE PLAY AND WHERE WE WORK. THEY PROVIDE STARTING POINT FOR CHANGE AND COMMUNITIES. I FIND THIS IS AN EXCELLENT RESOURCE IN 2016 THEY ADDED NEW MEASURES SUCH AS FOLKS WHO SAY THEY HAVE EXPERIENCED FREQUENT DISTRESS OR MENTAL HEALTH DISTRESS OR DRUG OVERDOSE STATS OR INEFFICIENT SLEEP AS WELL. FOR EXAMPLE, IF LIBRARIES NEEDED TO JUSTIFY THE PURCHASE OF MATERIALS FOR A BOARD OF TRUSTEES OR A MAKER YOU CAN USE THE HEALTHY DRUG STATS AND ROAD MAPS TO LOCATE INFORMATION ON YOUR COUNTY, COMPARE IT TO NEARBY COUNTIES IN YOUR STATE OR NEARBY STATE AND GIVE JUSTIFICATION WHY YOU NEED TO RAISE AWARENESS TO A PARTICULAR TOPIC. HEALTH STATISTICS ON THE WEB IS ANOTHER COURSE OFFERED HERE AT NNLM FOR FREE. IT WAS COVERED AND IT OFFERS SOURCES FOR FINDING HEALTH INFORMATION BEYOND THE TWO SLIDES I JUST SHARED SO IF THAT’S UP YOUR ALLEY, YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT A RECORDING OF THAT CLASS. SO ONCE YOU’VE HAD A CHANCE TO REVIEW YOUR COMMUNITY HEALTH NEEDS, WHERE DO YOU BEGIN? HEALTH OUTREACH IS SIMILAR TO ANY OUTREACH YOU MAY CONDUCT. YOU MAY THINK YOU NEED TO DEVELOP A PLAN AND YOU DO. IT IS OFTEN HELPFUL TO IDENTIFY YOUR TARGET POPULATION, THE TYPE OF OUTREACH YOU WANT TO DO AND THEN HAVE AN ASSESSMENT OF THE AVAILABLE RESOURCES LIKE WHAT IS EVEN AVAILABLE FOR US TO DO. IT’S EVEN HELPFUL TO THINK OF THE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE RESOURCES AND POSSIBLY A STAFF MEMBER WHO IS AN EXCELLENT PUBLIC SPEAKER ON A TOPIC AND WE’LL GET TO TALKING ABOUT LOCAL AGENCIES AN D PARTNERSHIPS AND HEALTH OUTREACH DOESN’T MEAN YOU HAVE TO PROVIDE A ONE-HOUR PROGRAM OR SPEAKER OR ACTIVITY. WHEN WE GET TO TALK ABOUT THE IDEAS I’M SHARING DOESN’T NECESSARILY HAVE TO BE SOMETHING YOU THINK OF IN A TRADITIONAL SENSE. ALSO, WE WANT TO CONSIDER WHAT TRAINING OUR STAFF OR OURSELVES MAY NEED, WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION NEEDS WE HAVE AND OF COURSE IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO PROGRAMMING IDENTIFYING WHAT THAT IS. IN ORDER TO THINK THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR ACTIVITY, HERE ARE SEVEN GREAT QUESTIONS YOU CAN ASK YOURSELF ABOUT PROGRAMMING BUT OF COURSE ALWAYS GREAT TO ASK FOR MOST THINGS IN OUR LIFE. THESE THINGS ARE MULTI-FACETED BUT HELP YOU RECOGNIZE WHAT KINDS OF PIECES YOU HAVEN’T PLACED AND WHAT OTHER THINGS YOU DON’T HAVE IN PLACE. SO WHEN WE THINK ABOUT THE WHO, THINK ABOUT YOUR TARGET POPULATION AND WHO THAT MAY BE. WHAT ORGANIZATION COULD ASSIST OR WHO IN YOUR ORGANIZATION CAN ASSIST. WHO IN YOUR COMMUNITY IS AN EXPERT AROUND A HEALTH TOPIC AND POTENTIAL HEALTH PARTNER. THINK OF WHAT TYPE OF HEALTH ACTIVITY DO YOU WISH TO PROVIDE OR ABLE TO PROVIDE. WILL YOU PROVIDE THE INFORMATION OR BRING IN A SPEAKER? WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE WHEN, WHEN WILL YOU OFFER THIS PROGRAM? WILL YOU DO IT SO STAFF AND YOUR TARGET POPULATION CAN MAKE IT, FOR EXAMPLE, I WOULDN’T NECESSARILY, REFLECTING BACK DO A PROGRAM WITH SENIORS AFTER IT’S NOT A TIME THAT WILL PROBABLY WORK FOR THEM. WHEN WE TALK ABOUT WHERE THE PROGRAM WILL BE HELD DO YOU HAVE THE SPACE OR IN A SENIOR CENTER OR SCHOOL OR OTHER LIBRARY? AND WE THINK ABOUT THE WHY. WHY DO YOU WANT TO OFFER THIS OUTREACH ACTIVITY TO START WITH? WHY WILL THIS BENEFIT YOUR ORGANIZATION AND WHY WILL IT BENEFIT YOUR TARGET POPULATION. AND OF COURSE WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE HOW, HOW WILL YOU MARKET THE PROGRAM. ARE THERE SPECIFIC PLACES YOU CAN HELP MARKET TO AND HOW WILL YOU LOCATE ANY SPEAKERS IF YOU WERE UNAWARE OF THEM. OF COURSE THE BIG QUESTION, HOW MUCH. THIS QUESTION INVOLVES LOOKING AT HOW MUCH STAFF TIME YOU WANT TO INVEST AND HOW MUCH MONEY ANY PROGRAM COULD REALLY COST. SO THESE ARE REALLY JUST SEVEN QUESTIONS TO LOOK AT WHENEVER YOU’RE THINKING OF HEALTH PROGRAMMING AND REALLY ANYTHING IN YOUR LIBRARY ORGANIZATION. SO AS COMPLICATED AS LOGIC MODELS MAY SOUND THEY COULD BE EASY TO DO AND HELPFUL TO GET YOUR PROGRAM IDEA TO EVALUATION AND FILL OUT EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. SO LOOKING AT THIS THERE IS A BLANK PAGE THAT IS ON THE COURSE PAGE SO YOU COULD COPY THIS AS A WORD DOCUMENT FORM. IF WE’RE LOOKING AT THE DIFFERENT SECTIONS, THINK OF THE INPUTS AS THE RESOURCE WILL BE USED FOR THE ACTIVITY OR PROGRAM YOU WISH TO CONDUCT. THE ACTIVITIES IN THIS CASE ARE THE THINGS YOU’LL NEED TO DO OR PROVIDE, THE OUTCOMES ARE HOW MANY AND WHAT SORT OF OBSERVABLE, TANGIBLE RESULT CAN BE ACHIEVED. THE SHORT-TERM FOCUS IS WHAT WILL OCCUR AS THE DIRECT RESULT OF THE ACTIVITY AND THE ASSUMPTIONS ARE BELIEFS ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT AND COMMUNITY. MAYBE MORE LIKE QUALITATIVE INFORMATION ABOUT OUR COMMUNITIES. EXTERNAL FACTORS INCLUDE THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE INFLUENCES. THE CULTURE, THE ECONOMICS, POLITICS, DEMOGRAPHICS OF THE COMMUNITY. ASSUMPTIONS AND EXTERNAL FACTORS SHOULD BE CONFIRMED FOR ANY PROGRAM. OF COURSE WE HAVE A FILLED OUT EXAMPLE FOR US TO TAKE A LOOK AT. THIS IS JUST FOR A GENERAL HEALTH INFORMATION OUTREACH PROGRAM. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT LOGIC MODELS, YOU’LL SEE IN YOUR RESOURCE GUIDE THERE IS A LINK TO THE NNLM EVALUATION OFFICE. YOUR WELCOME, IF YOU’RE APPLYING FOR FUNDING TO REACH OUT AND LOOK AROUND THE WEBSITE AS WELL. THERE’S HELPFUL INFORMATION ABOUT DEVELOPING THE EVALUATION. AS I JUST SAID, A WORD DOCUMENT TEMPLATE FOR THE MODEL IS AVAILABLE ON THE COURSE PAGE AND I ALWAYS SAY, DON’T FORGET TAXONOMIES WHEN YOU WRITE YOUR MODEL OR ANYTHING IN THE PUBLIC LIBRARY WORLD. IT HELPS YOU WITH YOUR LANGUAGE. SO LOGIC MODEL CAN BE A DREAM FOR THOSE WHO OPERATE WHO PLAN AHEAD AND A NIGHTMARE FOR OTHERS. HERE’S A FUNNY EXAMPLE OF A LOGIC MODEL FOR A CHILDREN’S BIRTHDAY PARTY COMPLETE A FORMER EVALUATION SPECIALIZATION SPECIALIST AND IT’S HOW THEY CAN BE USEFUL AND DON’T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE DAUNTING. CONSIDER PRACTICING THIS IDEA OF A LOGIC MODEL WHEN YOU PLAN YOUR NEXT EVENT TO GET IN THE RIGHT FRAME OF MIND WHEN THINKING ABOUT HOW TO PLAN THINGS FOR THE LONG TERM. FOR THIS TYPE OF LOGIC MODEL, THERE’S A FEW WAYS TO APPROACH IT BUT YOU CAN START WITH YOUR GOAL AND YOUR LONG-TERM OUTCOME AND THEN TRY TO WORK YOUR WAY BACK. SO MARKETING. ONCE YOU HAVE DETERMINED YOUR TARGET POPULATION IT’S NEVER TOO EARLIER TO THINK HOW YOU’LL PROMOTE THE HEALTH OUTREACH ACTIVITY. WHAT AGENCIES IN YOUR COMMUNITY DO YOUR TARGET POPULATION FREQUENT? WHAT AREAS OF YOUR ORGANIZATION ARE YOUR TARGET POPULATION MOST LIKELY TO BE IN? IT CAN SOMETIMES SEEM LIKE A PROCESS OF TRIAL AND ERROR TO DETERMINE WHAT ARE THE BEST MARKETING STRATEGIES. YOU KNOW YOUR ORGANIZATION AND YOUR LIBRARY BEST BUT I’M GOING TO GO OVER A COUPLE DIFFERENT IDEAS. SOME IDEAS ARE THE TRADITIONAL USE OF FLYERS AND SIGNAGE ON BULLETIN BOARDS AND WINDOWS OF LOCAL BUSINESSES. ADDITIONALLY, MANY ORGANIZATIONS HAVE AN INCREASED PRESENCE. IT MAY BE POSSIBLE TO SHARE A CALENDAR OR GET A PRESS RELEASE OR THE SOCIAL SEEDS OF YOUR AREA. MARKETING DOESN’T HAVE TO BE RESTRICTING TO THE WALLS OF YOUR LIBRARY. PLACE BOOK MARKS IN DOCTORS OFFICES AN HAVE FLYERS ON UPCOMING SERIES AND DATABASE SEARCHS IN GROCERY STORES, HAIR AND NAIL SALONS AND COMMUNITY AND FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOODS. IN A LIBRARY SETTING, I MIGHT FIND IT USEFUL TO PLACE THINGS IN THE STACKS WHERE THE HEALTH INFORMATION IS. THAT WAY YOU MAY CATCH THE CASUAL BROWSER LOOKING THROUGH COOK BOOKS OR DIFFERENT HEALTH NEEDS. DO NOT FORGET THE POWER OF WORD OF MOUTH OR PERSONAL INVITATIONS. I WOULD ALWAYS TELL PATRONS AND THEY WOULD SOMETIMES SHOW UP. ALSO, IF YOU HAVE MARKETING MATERIALS YOU CREATE SAY A BOOKMARK OR SOMETHING, WHEN PEOPLE COME TO YOUR LIBRARY TO PICK UP THEIR HOLDS, YOU CAN HAVE ONE IN EACH BOOK SO EVERYONE WILL SEE DIFFERENT THINGS COMING UP. MANY TACTICS. USE WHATEVER WORKS BEST FOR YOUR POPULATION. THE LIBRARIES TRANSFORM CAMPAIGN WAS DESIGNED TO INCREASE PUBLIC AWARENESS OF THE VALUE IMPACT AND SERVICES PROVIDED BY LIBRARIES AND LIBRARY PROFESSIONALS. THE CAMPAIGN ENSURE THERE’S A CLEAR ENERGETIC VOICE FOR OUR PROFESSIONAL AND SHOWCASING THE TRANSFORMATIVE NATURE AND ELEVATING THE ROLE LIBRARIES PLAY IN THE DIGITAL AGE. SOME KEY MESSAGES ARE LIBRARIES TRANSFORM LIVES, LIBRARIES TRANSFORM COMMUNITIES AND LIBRARIES ARE PASSIONATE ADVOCATES FOR LIFELONG LEARNING AND LIBRARY A SMART INVESTMENT. THE NATIONAL NETWORK OF THE LIBRARIES OF MEDICINE PARTNERED WITH A.L.A. TO CREATE A FREE HEALTH LITERACY TOOL KIT. HEALTH LITERACY MONTH IS OCTOBER BUT YOU’RE WELCOME TO REQUEST THE KIT AT ANY TIME AND USE THE POSTERS. AND IT EQUIPS LIBRARY PROFESSIONALS WITH TOOLS AND THERE’S MESSAGES AND DOWNLOADABLE MATERIALS AND TEM PLATES. THERE’S A WEALTH OF INFORMATION. AND IT SPEAKS TO DIFFERENT AUDIENCES AS WELL. ONE QUESTION I HAVE FOR YOU ALL IF YOU WANT TO START UTILIZING THE CHAT BOX FOR THE FIRST TIME, OF THESE MESSAGES, WHICH ARE THE HEALTH INFORMATION MESSAGES, I’M CURIOUS IF WE HAVE A CONSENSUS OF WHAT OUR FAVORITE IS. IF ANYONE IS LISTENING IN AND WANTS TO SHARE WHICH OF THESE LIBRARY TRANSFORM STATEMENTS SPEAKS MOST TO THEM, I’M HAPPY TO GET YOUR FEEDBACK. ANGELA SHARED SHE LIKES BETTER HEALTH DECISIONS. BRITTANY SHARED THE INFORMATION HELPS YOU MAKE BETTER HEALTH DECISIONS AN JENNIFER POINTED OUT MY FAVORITE ONE BECAUSE FAKE NEWS IS HARMFUL TO YOUR HEALTH AND KNOWLEDGE IS THE KEY INGREDIENT TO NUTRITION. SO YEAH, DEPENDING ON WHICH REGION YOU LIVE IN AND WHO YOUR NLM OFFICE IS, WE HAVE VARYING AMOUNTS AVAILABLE FOR ORDER. YOU GO TO THE NNLM WEBSITE WHERE YOU REGISTERED FOR THIS CLASS AND LOOK FOR ORDER YOU MAY BE ABLE TO POSSIBLY GET THIS FROM YOUR REGION. WE’LL MOVE ON TO THE NEXT TOPIC WHICH IS HEALTH INFORMATION RESOURCE. THE QUESTION I HAVE FOR YOU ALL IS WHERE YOU FIND YOUR HEALTH INFORMATION FOR YOURSELF IF YOU’RE A LIBRARIAN, FOR YOUR COMMUNITY, WHERE DO YOU USUALLY GO? THERE ARE NO WRONG ANSWERS HERE. FEEL FREE TO SHARE WHATEVER RESOURCES YOU USE WHETHER IT’S JUST GOING TO GOOGLE, I SEEM TO BE PREACHING TO THE CHOIR BECAUSE I SEE A LOT OF MEDLINE PLUS. ASSOCIATIONS YOU BELONG TO. DO YOU HAVE EXAMPLES OF AN ASSOCIATION, AMY? ARE YOU THINKING NEWSLETTERS POSSIBLY? THANKS, HANNAH. THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF DIABETES EDUCATORS. THERE’S SOME GOOD RESOURCES HERE. IT SEEMS MOST OF US USE MEDLINE PLUS AND A LOT OF US USE GOOGLE. IT DOES A PRETTY GOOD JOB BUT OFTEN GETS YOU A LOT OF RESULTS AND NOT EASY TO TELL WHAT’S A RELIABLE SOURCE OF HEALTH INFORMATION. THE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE HAS A VARIETY OF RESOURCES AVAILABLE. WE STARTED TO TALK ABOUT MEDLINE PLUS A LITTLE SO WE’LL GET INTO THAT NOW. SO IMAGINE MEDLINE PLUS, IF YOU’RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH IT AS YOUR NEW HEALTH INFORMATION GOOGLE. HEALTH TOPICS ON IMPORTANT HEALTH ISSUES INCLUDE ASTHMA, CANCER, DIABETES, ETCETERA. THERE IS EXTENSIVE DRUG AND SUPPLEMENT INFORMATION, VIDEOS, HEALTH QUIZZES AND GAMES. IF YOU’RE IN A LIBRARY AND MAINTAIN A PROBLEM LE EXPENSIVE AND DATED COLLECTION OF MEDICAL ENCYCLOPEDIAS MEDLINE PLUS HAS AN EXTENSIVE SAID THE THAT’S WRITTEN AT THE HAD FOURTH GRADE LEVEL SO IT’S GREAT WHEN PEOPLE ARE ASKING FOR INFORMATION. THERE’S ALSO INFORMATION ABOUT CLINICAL TRIALS, MEDLINE PLUS MAGAZINE AVAILABLE FOR PRINT AS WELL. THERE’S EASY TO READ HEALTH INFORMATION YOU CAN SEE IN THE BOTTOM LEFT AS WELL AS A DIRECTORY TO FIND HEALTH PRACTITIONERS AND ORGANIZATIONS AND INFORMATION IN OTHER LANGUAGES. THERE’S AN ENGLISH AND SPANISH SITE AND INFORMATION FOR OTHER LANGUAGES. ONE OF MY FAVORITE ASSETS ABOUT MEDLINE PLUS IS THERE ARE NO ENDORSEMENTS OR ADVERTISEMENTS. MEDLINE PLUS LINK TO TRUSTED INFORMATION ACROSS GOVERNMENT AND UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITAL RESOURCE WEBSITES INCLUDING THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH, THE MAYO CLINICAL AND THE FOUNDATION. SO MEDLINE PLUS HEALTH TOPICS. THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF A HEALTH TOPIC PAGE AND WE DID A QUICK SEARCH OF THE AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER. YOU CAN SKIP TO SYMPTOMS, DIAGNOSIS, FIND AN EXPERT AND MORE AND SCROLL THROUGH THE ENTIRE HEALTH TOPIC. THE IMAGE TO THE RIGHT IS REALLY JUST A LITTLE FURTHER DOWN ON THE PAGE. I JUST WANTED YOU TO SEE MOST OF IT. MEDLINE PLUS GATHERS INFORMATION AND ORGANIZES IT RATHER THAN DOING AN INTERNET SEARCH WHERE YOU GO TO THE MAYO CLINIC AND THEN AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS. EVERYTHING IS HERE AND SAFE. WITH ANY GOOD SOURCE IT’S THE DETAILS THAT MATTER. ONE THING I LIKE THOUGH KILLING TREES IS NOT ALWAYS GREAT, BUT SOMETIMES THAT’S LIKE THE BEST WAY TO GET INFORMATION WHEN YOU’RE WORKING WITH THE PUBLIC AND MEDLINE PLUS HAS A PRINTER FRIENDLY VERSION WITH THE SPELLED OUT LINK SO YOU CAN FIND THE RESOURCE AND WHILE PRINTING HYPERLINKS CAN BE USEFUL IN PRACTICE. I
WANTED TO GIVE YOU ANOTHER EXAMPLE. ONE OF MY FAVORITES FROM MEDLINE PLUS AND THIS IS INSTRUCTIONS ON AN ASTHMA NEBULIZER. SO RECENTLY THE ENGLISH VERSION IS INCLUDED WITH THE OTHER LANGUAGE SO THAT WAY IF A STUDENT OR FAMILY MEMBER OR SOMEONE IS ASKING FOR INFORMATION AND THE PERSON WHO IS HELPING THE PATIENT NEEDS INFORMATION THEY CAN BOTH READ IT IN THE LANGUAGE THEY’RE MOST COMFORTABLE IN. THIS IS NEBULIZER TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS FOR ENGLISH AND JAPANESE. HEALTH REACH IS ANOTHER RESOURCE FOR INFORMATION. HEALTH REACH IS A NATIONAL COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIP CREATED AS MULTICULTURAL HEALTH INFORMATION PROVIDING INFORMATION FOR THOSE WITH LIMITED ENGLISH PROFICIENCY WITH HEALTH EDUCATION MATERIALS INCLUDING FORMATS, BROCHURES, FACT SHEETS AND VIDEOS AND PROVIDER TOOLS INCLUDING BEST PRACTICES AN CULTURAL INFORMATION AND HOW TO EFFECTIVELY USE INTERPRETERS AND YOU CAN SEARCH BY TOPIC BY SELECTING A LANGUAGE OR FORMAT LIKE DOCUMENTS, AUDIO, VIDEO. EVERYTHING YOU MIGHT EVER WANT ISN’T QUITE ON HERE SINCE A NATIONAL COLLABORATIVE BUT A RESOURCE THAT GROWS REGULARLY. SO NEXT WE’LL TALK ABOUT PARTNERSHIPS BEFORE WE GET INTO SOME CONCRETE IDEAS. IF YOU DO HEALTH PROGRAMMING ALREADY IN YOUR COMMUNITY SPACE, WHO ARE YOUR PARTNER. FEEL FREE TO SHARE YOUR SUCCESSFUL PROGRAMS IN THE CHAT BOX. OR AS I LIKE TO SAY, NOT SO SUCCESSFUL PROGRAMS ARE ALSO WELCOME TO BE HEARD ABOUT. WHAT ARE SOME YOU HAVE PARTNERED WITH OR THAT YOU WANT TO. SO I SEE YMCA, SENIOR CENTERS AND FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS. STAFF MEMBERS CERTIFIED TO TEACH YOGA AND MINDFULNESS. THERE’S A POINT OF WORKING WITHIN THE LIBRARY SO LOOK AROUND YOUR STAFF AND SEE WHO MIGHT OFFER SOME. ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION. THERE’S A WHOLE BUNCH. HOSPITALS. AND SHARE WITH YOUR LOCAL GROUPS. AS THE SAY GREAT START. THIS IS HOW TO WORK WITH YMCAs OR WYCAs AND A LOCAL TROOP. IT’S AROUND
TO LOOK AROUND THE COMMUNITIES AND WITHIN OUR BUILDINGS TO SEE WHO MIGHT HELP US. THE BOTTOM LINE IS YOU WON’T KNOW UNTIL YOU DON’T ASK, UNTIL YOU ASK. SO I’M SURE EACH OF YOU CAN THINK OF SOME AGENCY IN YOUR COMMUNITY THAT MAY BE A POTENTIAL PARTNER. HERE’S A LITTLE BIT ON CHOOSING A PARTNER. BEFORE CHOOSE COMMUNITY PARTNER IT COULD BE HELPFUL TO REFER BACK TO THE MODEL ON THE SEVEN KEY QUESTIONS WE DISCUSSED EARLIER. FOR EXAMPLE, WHAT ARE YOUR PROGRAM GOALS? WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING TO ACHIEVE? WHAT NEEDS MIGHT BE MET IN THE LIBRARY. WHAT MIGHT HAVE TO HAPPEN OUTSIDE OF THE LIBRARY. HOW CAN YOU PARTNER TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS? FIRST, LET’S CONSIDER OUR AUDIENCE. DO YOU NEED HELP ATTRACTING A CERTAIN TARGET AUDIENCE TO THE PROGRAM OR LIBRARY IN GENERAL? SO CONSIDER A COMMUNITY PARTNER WITH CONNECTIONS OR INFLUENCE WITH YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE AND PARTICULARLY THINKING ABOUT COMMUNITIES OR FOLKS THAT MAY BE RUNNING A GROUP ALREADY AND YOU CAN JUST PROVIDE THE SPACE. PUBLICITY. DO YOU NEED HELP PUBLICIZING YOUR PROGRAM? APPROACH PEOPLE WITH PUBLICITY SKILLS THAT CAN HELP YOU AND DON’T BE AFRAID TO TALK TO FOLKS THAT MAY BE ABLE TO HELP IF YOU’RE IN A LARGER ORGANIZATION. GET ACQUAINTED WITH LOCAL REPORTERS OR MEDIA SOURCES. IF HAVE YOU A CORDIAL RELATIONSHIP YOU’RE LIKELY TO GET THE LIBRARY BEAT COVERED. WHEN WE’RE THINKING OF FUNDING, DO YOU NEED ADDITIONAL FUNDS TO PRESENT YOUR PROGRAM? ARE YOU THINKING OF BRINGING IN SMALL THINGS AND CHANGES TO PROGRAMS THAT ALREADY EXIST OR WILL YOU GO BIG? IN THAT CASE YOU MAY WANT TO OFFER OPPORTUNITIES TO LOCAL BUSINESSES TO SET UP FUNDS AND THEY CAN DEMONSTRATE VALUE TO THE COMMUNITY AS A PARTNER. CONSIDER IF YOU HIRE LOCAL VENDORS OR COMMUNITY GROUPS THEY’RE ABLE TO GIVE A SMALL PROFIT BACK TO THE LIBRARY OR ORGANIZATION. THINK OF BOOK STORES. ESPECIALLY BOOK STORES ARE ALIVE AND WELL AND OFTEN SO HELPFUL WITH PARTNERING AND BRINGING IN AUTHORS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. COULD A PARTNER RAISE FUNDS FOR A LIBRARY PROGRAM AND IN THE OF COURSE DO NOT FORGET NNLM. SOME ARE IN ATTENDANCE TODAY BECAUSE YOU MAY BE CONSIDERING APPLYING FOR FUNDING IN SOME OF OUR REGIONS IN THE MIDDLE ATLANTIC REGION OUR FUNDING IS OPEN NOW. SO WE’RE ALSO GOING TO THINK ABOUT PEOPLE AND WHAT ADDITIONAL PEOPLE DO YOU NEED TO HELP PLAN YOUR EXPERIENCE. I OFTEN LIKE TO SAY EVERYONE IS A POTENTIAL VOLUNTEER. EXAMPLES INCLUDE LOCAL BUSINESSES AND EMPLOYEE VOLUNTEERS AND CAREER GROUPS AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT GROUPS FRIENDS, NEIGHBORHOODS, FRIENDS FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND DOGS AND I USED TO BE IN A MONTHLY THERAPY DOG PROGRAM WHERE CHILDREN WOULD MEET THERAPY DOGS OR THERAPY BUNNIES IN SOME INSTANCES. NEVER AT THE SAME TIME. IT WAS AN AMAZING AND ALMOST NO-COST PROGRAM. IF YOU’RE THINKING OF YOUR SPACE, COULD YOU FIND SOMEONE TO HOST IT, OR IF YOU DO HAVE A SPACE, COULD YOU OFFER YOUR SPACE, YOUR PARKING LOT, YOUR ASSETS TO BRING MORE PEOPLE IN. THINKING OF IDEAS AND KNOW-HOW. PERHAPS THERE’S A COMMUNITY THAT ORGANIZED A SIMILAR MEMBER AND A PERSON DOWN THE STREET HOSTED A HEALTH FAIR BUT IT’S BEEN A FEW YEARS SO TALK TO THEM BEFORE YOU DO IT. WHEN IT COMES TO PERFORMERS, UTILIZE YOUR LOCAL TALENT. EVERYONE IS OR KNOWS A POTENTIAL TALENT. SCAN THE MEDIA FOR GROUPS WHO HAVE BEEN INFLUENCING IN THE AREA LATELY. BUILD CONTACTS WITH LOCAL STREET ACTORS GUILD OFFICES AND ART GROUPS. THE LIST CAN GO ON AND ON. BEING IN TOUCH. YOU NEVER KNOW THE NEXT ARTIST OR THE NEXT PERSON THAT WILL BE WILLING TO HELP YOU. AND I LIKE TO SAY THINK INSIDE THE LIBRARY. THIS IS GOING BACK TO WHAT JENNIFER SUGGESTED. YOU DON’T ALWAYS HAVE TO COME UP WITH NEW AND DIFFERENT PEOPLE TO COME UP WITH. LOOK AT THE PARTNERS YOU CURRENTLY HAVE AND CONSIDER THE STAFF AND SKILLS AND CERTIFICATIONS OF YOUR STAFF OR SOMEONE FROM YOUR FRIEND’S GROUP OR LIBRARY BOARD TO HELP YOU GET STARTED. MEDLINE PLUS HAS AN ORGANIZATION AND LIKE IN AN EXAMPLE AT THE TOP HERE, LIKE THE ACADEMY OF NUTRITION AND DIETETICS, THEY MAY HAVE A LOCAL CHAPTER TO APPROACH. SAME WITH AMERICAN DENTAL ASSOCIATION AND CHAPTERS OF FOLKS THAT MAY BE WILLING TO HELP YOU. BE CLEAR AND HONEST WHAT YOU WANT FROM YOUR PARTNER. DO YOU NEED A PARTNER TO BE ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN THE PRESENTATION OF THE PROGRAM OR DO YOU WANT TO DEVELOP THE PROGRAM AND BRING THEM IN AT A DIFFERENT PART OF THE PLANNING PROCESS? THINK ABOUT HOW THE PARTNERSHIP WILL BENEFIT YOU AND YOUR COMMUNITY PARTNER. WHAT’S IN IT FOR THEM. A SUCCESSFUL PROGRAM WILL BENEFIT BOTH PARTIES AND A PARTNER IS LIKELY TO BE PUT ON BOARD AND THE P.R. VALUE OF BEING LISTED AS A SPONSOR OF A LARGE COMMUNITY EVENT COULD HELP THEIR PROFILE. IN ADDITION, YOU CAN BUILD CONTACTS BY OFFERING LIBRARY RESOURCES TO OTHER COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS. SO MEET YOUR P.T.A. AND P.T.O. FOLKS. I ALWAYS SAY BE PREPARED. HAVE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR PROGRAM AND THE LIBRARY READY TO GIVE TO A POTENTIAL PRESENTER. BE SURE TO RESEARCH PARTNERS THOROUGHLY, ASK AROUND. FORMALLY AND INFORMALLY. IT CAN BE A HELPFUL WAY TO TALK TO PEOPLE WHO WORKED WITH THEM BEFORE. SOMETIMES THERE’S POSITIVE FEEDBACK FROM THE PAST. SOMETIMES THERE’S LESS SO. YOU MAY SAVE YOURSELF A LOT OF TORMENT. ALL THESE PROGRAMS WERE FROM WORKING WITH COMMUNITY PARTNER A TOOL KIT WERE AVAILABLE AND THESE IDEA WERE FROM THAT. THIS PROGRAM IS FOR EVERYONE AND IMPORTANTLY THE OPTIMISTS. APPROACH PARTNER WITH A HEALTHY DOSE OF SKEPTICISM TO ENSURE YOU ARE PROMOTING SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN INFORMATION AND NOT PROMOTING MYTHS. SOMETIMES IT CHALLENGES RELATIONSHIPS. I’M SURE WE KNOW SOMEBODY WHO HAS SOLD DIET SHAKES, TEAS OR OILS SO PROCEED WITH CAUTION. THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF A TRADE CARD WERE PRINT AND PRODUCED IN THE LATE 19th CENTURY. THIS IS FROM 1877 AND IT’S GYMNASTICS EXERCISES TRADE CARDS THAT WERE DONATED FOR FREE TO THE PUBLIC FROM THE W. DUKE SONS BRAND OF CIGARETTES IN THE ARCHIVES. I WANTED TO INCLUDE THAT AS A LITTLE NOD TO MISINFORMATION ABOUT HEALTH OVER THE AGES. PROCEED WITH CAUTION. WHEN IT COMES TO PROGRAM RESOURCES, WHAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU THINK OF HEALTH PROGRAMMING IN LIBRARIES OR IN ORGANIZATIONS? FEEL FREE TO NAME OUT YOUR FAVORITES. OR ONES THAT MAY BE DIDN’T GO SO WELL. WHEN I WORKED IN PUBLIC LIBRARIES MY FAVORITE COOKING PROGRAM I DID WAS BASED AROUND HERITAGE COOKING WITH TEENS AND TEEN VOLUNTEERS WOULD SHARE A FAMILY RECIPE AND WE WOULD ADAPT IT TO REMOVE THE TOP EIGHT ALLERGENS AND THINK OF WHEAT, CORN, EGG, AND TRY TO MAKE THE RECIPE AS INCLUSIVE AS POSSIBLE IN THE LIBRARY SPACE. THAT WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITES. DOES ANYONE ELSE WANT TO SHARE WHAT THEY’RE THINKING OF WHEN IT COMES TO HEALTH PROGRAMMING? I SEE BRITTANY IS SHARING SHE HAD A SUCCESSFUL WHEELCHAIR YOGA PROGRAM FOR LIBRARY AND ELDERLY PATRONS. I HAVE A COUPLE SLIDES ABOUT CHAIR EXERCISES COMING UP THAT ARE PRETTY EASY TO DO. PHYSICAL MOVEMENT IS GREAT. STORY TIME. NUTRITION LESSONS. I WOULD DOUBLE DOWN ON THAT, AMY. SAYING LIKE EVERY STORY TIME CAN BE A HEALTHY STORY TIME IF YOU GET EVERYONE TO RUN AROUND A LITTLE BIT. I WAS A CHILDREN’S/TEEN LIBRARY BEFORE THE HEALTH SCIENCES LIFE. I WOULD ALWAYS TRY TO MAKE SURE HAD LOTS OF RUNG AND JUMPING TO MY STORY TIMES. KEEP EVERYBODY MOVING. KAREN, SHARED YOU CAN HAVE A DROP-IN TABLE WITH INFORMATION ON SPECIFIC HEALTH INFORMATION LIKE DIABETES OR STROKE. I THINK THAT’S A GOOD IDEA. PUTTING THINGS OUT IN THE PUBLIC FOR PEOPLE TO SEE NOT NECESSARILY AWAY ON A BOARD. SO LET’S GET INTO SOME PROGRAM RESOURCES. THIS IS MY FAVORITE PART. SO FIRST, BLAST OFF. THE NATIONAL NETWORK OF LIBRARIES OF MEDICINE PARTNERED WITH THE COLLABORATIVE SUMMER LIBRARY PROGRAM TO BRING HEALTH PROGRAMMING TO YOUR LIBRARY FOR SUMMER READING. FOR THOSE NOT FAMILIAR, SOME OF US IN ATTENDANCE ARE NOT IN LIBRARIES. THE COLLABORATIVE SUMMER LIBRARY PROGRAM, CSLP, SAY CONSORTIUM OF STATES AND ISLAND NATIONS WORKING TOGETHER TO PROVIDE LIBRARIES AROUND THE COUNTRIES WITH A SHARED SUMMER READING THEME AND SUPPORTING MATERIALS. THESE TERMS INCLUDE PROFESSIONAL ARTWORK, PROMOTIONAL ITEMS AND TARGETING CHILDREN, TEENS AND ADULTS. EACH YEAR ABOUT 16,000 PUBLIC LIBRARIES PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM. AND HOST SUMMER READING PROGRAMS BASED ON THE MATERIALS THAT ARE PROVIDED AND DEVELOPED BY CSLP. THIS SUMMER READING PROGRAM THEME FOR 2019 IS THE UNIVERSE OF STORIES, AS YOU CAN SEE HERE. IN CELEBRATION OF THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE FIRST MOONLIGHTING. WE’LL GET INTO SHARING THE PROGRAMS THAT SOME OF MY COLLEAGUES HERE AT NNLM HAVE CREATED. SO ON THIS WEBSITE, I’LL GO BACK ONE ON THE NNLM SUMMER READING INITIATIVE WEBSITE WHICH IS LINKED IN YOUR RESOURCE GUIDE, THERE IS A PROGRAM MANUAL THAT OUTLINES FIVE REALLY EXCELLENT PROGRAMS. THE FIRST ONE IS THE WE ARE ALL MADE OF STARDUST. THE ATOMS ON OUR BODIES ALL CAME FROM THE STARS THAT EXPLODED ACROSS THE GALAXY A LONG TIME AGO. ACTIVITIES INCLUDE MAKING STARDUST PLAY-DOH AND BUBBLES IN SPACE IS A FUN ONE. ASTRONAUTS CONDUCT ALL KINDS OF EXPERIMENTS ON THE SPACE STATION AND WATCH VIDEOS OF NASA ASTRONAUTS MAKING BUBBLES IN SPACE STATION. I’VE WATCHED SOME AND IT’S PRETTY FUNNY. THE INCREDIBLE EDIBLE DNA IS CITIZEN SCIENCE AT THE LIBRARY. EXPLORE AND MAP DNA WITH CANDY ACTIVITY OR SCALE UP AND SUBMIT A PROJECT. GENES IN SPACE FOR ASTRONAUTS TO TEST IN SPACE. SOME EXPERIMENTS DEVELOPED ARE SELECTED AND TAKEN TO THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION SO IT’S A NON-PROFIT THAT WORKS WITH NASA. FOOD AND SPACE, WE DID A PROGRAM THIS SUMMER. WHAT DO ASTRONAUTS EAT IN SPACE? ABOUT THE SAME BUT PREPARATION IS DIFFERENT. IMAGINE MAKING A SPACE MEAL IN USING THE SAME TECHNIQUES THERE’S THE YOUR FAMILY, YOUR HISTORY AND HEALTH. THE KELLY WINS, MARK AND SCOTT KELLY ARE THE ONLY TWO TWIN IDENTICAL ASTRONAUTS IN HISTORY AND IDENTICAL TWINS HAVE THE SAME GENETIC CODE AND NASA SCIENTISTS FOUND IT TO BE AN EXCELLENT RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY DURING THE PROGRAM OF FAMILY HISTORY. YOU CAN TALK ABOUT THE EXPERIMENT AND THEN HAVE FOLKS TALK ABOUT THEIR GENEALOGY. WE HAVE A WEBINAR ABOUT SUMMER LIBRARY PROGRAMS IN TWO WEEKS OR THREE WEEKS EXACTLY. THE SUMMER LIBRARY PROGRAM AND THE LIBRARY MOON WALK. THE LIBRARY MOON WALK IS A PROGRAM THAT THE NATIONAL NETWORK OF LIBRARIES OF MEDICINE FUNDED THAT HAS BEEN TAKEN PLACE THROUGH SPRING ACROSS THREE LIBRARY SYSTEMS IN UPSTATE NEW YORK AND ESSENTIALLY THEY CHALLENGE THE COMMUNITY TO TAKE SO MANY STEPS TO GET TO THE MOON. I DON’T HAVE A NOTE OF HOW MANY MILES THAT IS. IF YOU’D LIKE TO REGISTER, FEEL FREE IF YOU WANTED TO LEARN MORE ABOUT SUMMER READING. ON OUR WEBSITE, WE HAVE A HEALTH OUTREACH AND PROGRAM RESOURCE GUIDE WITH ACCESS TO MATERIALS RELATED TO HEALTH OUTREACH AND PROGRAMMING. THE PROGRAM IDEAS AND GUIDES TAB IS AN EVERY GROWING LIST OF PROGRAMS AND RESOURCES, PRESS AND ARTICLES RELATED TO SUCCESSFUL PROJECT THE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE HAS FUND AND PAST PROJECTS AS WELL LINK TO EVALUATION RESOURCES AND HOW TO TACKLE THE EVALUATION. IN THE CREATIVE TOOLS TAB YOU’LL FIND A LIST OF RESOURCES LIKE WORD GAMES, COMIC STRIPS AND OTHER COOL ACTIVITIES THAT YOU’LL BE ABLE TO HOPEFULLY ADAPT. THERE’S GAMES AND WORK SHEETS AND THEY’RE ALL READILY AVAILABLE FROM THE PAGE AND THIS IS LINKED IN YOUR RESOURCE LIST. SO IF YOU ALREADY HOST A BOOK CLUB, CONSIDER EXPLORE GRAPHIC MEDICINE. I’M GOING ASK ONE QUICK QUESTION OF THE FOLKS IN OUR GROUP. DOES ANYONE CURRENTLY HAVE A BOOK CLUB OR HOSTED BOOK CLUBS IN YOUR COMMUNITY SPACE LIKE IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS? IF YOU DON’T, HAVE YOU GIVEN CHALLENGES AS TO WHY YOU HAVEN’T? JENNIFER SAYS YES, SHE DOES. GRAPHIC MEDICINE IS COOL. I AGREE. IT’S ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT THIS WORK. ADULT BOOK CLUB ONCE A MONTH. VERY COOL. IT SEEMS LIKE TALKING ABOUT GRAPHIC MEDICINE I HAVE THE RIGHT AUDIENCE. IF YOU ALREADY HOST A BOOK CLUB CONSIDER EXPLORING GEOGRAPHIC MEDICINE. IT COMBINES VISUAL STORY TELLING AND MEDICINE CREATING A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR READERS TO EXPERIENCE AND LEARN ABOUT HEALTH CARE THROUGH COMICS. THE NATIONAL NETWORK OF LIBRARIES OF MEDICINE NEW ENGLAND REGION CIRCULATES GRAPHIC MEDICINE BOOK CLUB KITS. THEY’RE NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME OUTSIDE OF THE NEW ENGLAND REGION BUT DISCUSSION MATERIALS AND GUIDES ARE FREE ONLINE. TOPICS SUCH AS ADDICTION, EPILEPSY, GRIEF, MENTAL HEALTH, AS WELL AS OTHERS. I SHARED THE COVER HERE OF THE ALISON BECHDEL FUN HOME AND EXPLORE SEXUALITY AND MANY OTHER TOPICS. GO FOR LIFE IS AN EXERCISE IN PHYSICAL ACTIVITY CAMPAIGN FOR THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES ON AGING AT NIH. IT’S DESIGNED TO HELP YOU GET FIT AND EXPLORE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND MAKE IT WORK IN YOUR DAILY LIFE. MOTIVATING OLDER ADULTS TO BECOME PHYSICALLY ACTIVE FOR THE FIRST TIME. RETURN TO AN EXERCISE AFTER A BREAK IN THEIR ROUTINE OR BUILD MORE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY TO WEEKLY ROUTINES ARE ALL THE ELEMENTS OF GO FOR LIFE. IT OFFERS EXERCISES, MOTIVATIONAL TIPS, FREE RESOURCES TO HELP YOU GET STARTED AND GET GOING. THE GO FOR LIFE CAMPAIGN INCLUDES EVIDENCE-BASED EXERCISE GUIDE IN ENGLISH AND SPANISH AND EXERCISE VIDEO AND INTERACTIVE WEBSITE AND NATIONAL OUTREACH CAMPAIGN. AND I THINK WE’VE TALKED ABOUT SO MANY WEB RESOURCES AND THIS IS A BREATH OF FRESH AIR BECAUSE YOU CAN ACTUALLY ORDER PHYSICAL PRINT MATERIALS FOR FREE WITHIN REASON ON THEIR WEBSITE. GO FOR LIFE HAS PUBLICATIONS AVAILABLE. YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THEM SAME AS ORDER THEM. THE EXERCISES AND PHOTOS INSIDE ARE EXCELLENT IN MY OPINION AND THEY’RE A GREAT ASSET AT A SENIOR SENATOR OR IF YOU MAY CONSIDER APPLYING FOR NNLM FUNDING TO BRING THIS IN A LARGER SCALE TO YOUR COMMUNITY. AND THEY ALSO HAVE FREE WORKOUT VIDEOS ON THEIR WEBSITE. I KNOW A LOT OF FOLKS, ANY MOTHER INCLUDED, ACTUALLY, WILL WATCH YOUTUBE VIDEOS OF DANCING AND WORKOUT VIDEOS. IT’S SOMETHING PEOPLE LIKE TO DO LIKE A 15, 20-MINUTE VIDEO AND THEY’RE FREE AND AD FREE AND SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN. MEDLINE PLUS, SO IF YOU’RE DOING ANY NUTRITION OR COOKING PROGRAM ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE SEEKING FUND FROM NNLM USING THE RECIPES FROM MEDLINE PLUS ARE REALLY ACCIDENT. THE RECIPE FOR THE CLASSIC HONEY FLAN IS FROM THE NATIONAL LUNG AND BLOOD INSTITUTE. IT’S AN INSTITUTE OF THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH AND ANY RECIPE YOU CLICK ON BRINGS YOU TO THE SOURCE AND THEY’RE ALL EXCELLENT SOURCES. I HAVE A SWEET TOOTH SO I TRIED TO FIND ONE WITH A DESSERT AND THIS ONE INCLUDES AN EGG, EGG SUBSTITUTE, SKIM MILK, A SMALL AMOUNT OF MONEY, NO SUGAR AND A VANILLA, CINNAMON AND LEMON ZEST TO FLAVOR. I HAVEN’T MADE THIS ONE BUT IT MAY BE A FUN THING TO CONSIDER. THE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE HAS AN EXHIBITION PROGRAM. THEY PRODUCE TRAVELLING EXHIBITION MADE AVAILABLE FREE OF CHARGE TO MEDICAL LIBRARIES AND CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY THOUGH THERE IS A SHIPPING FEE, REACH OUT TO TALK ABOUT PARTNERING AND FINDING FUNDING RESOURCES. THE TRAVELLING EXHIBITION IS COMPRISED OF MANNERS. THERE’S USUALLY SIX OF THEM AND THEY’RE PRETTY LARGE. THE BANNERS PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY TO HIGHLIGHT SOMETHING IN YOUR SPACE OR BRING A FOCUS TO YOUR RESOURCES. AND THERE’S A MULTI-DISCIPLINARY RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS IN K-12 AND UNIVERSITIES. THERE’S EXTENSIVE LESSON PLANS. I’LL SHARE A FEW OF THEM. SAY YOU WORKED WITH HIGH SCHOOLERS AND YOU MAY WANT TO FOCUS ON HEALTH CAREER PROFESSIONAL. ONE IS THE PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS A COLLABORATION OF CARE EXHIBIT THAT DESCRIBES HOW THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPED OVER THE YEARS AND THEN ALSO SEEN HERE IS THE PICTURES IN NURSING. IT’S A POST CARD COLLECTION THAT REPRESENTS A SELECTION OF HISTORIC POST CARDS FROM NNLM’S RECENTLY ACQUIRED, I HOPE I PRONOUNCE THAT RIGHT Z-W-E-R-D-I-L-I-N-G, POST CARD COLLECTION SPANNING A CENTURY OF NURSING IMAGERY. THESE THREE EXHIBITS, ONE IS THE NATIVE VOICES. NATIVE PEOPLE’S CONCEPT OF HEALTH AND ILLNESS WHICH EXPLORE THE INTERCONNECTEDNESS OF WELLNESS AND ILLNESS IN CULTURAL LIFE AN AMERICAN NATIVE AND ALASKAN NATIVE AND NATIVE HAWAIIANS AND THIS ROLE NURSES PLAYED IN THE ROLE OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND NURSE REFORMERS IN THE FRONT LINES AND SHELTERS AND EMERGENCY ROOMS TO POLITICAL ADVOCATES LEADING TO THE PASSAGE OF THE 1994 VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT. OF COURSE, ONE OF MY FAVORITES SINCE GRAPHIC MEDICINE WE JUST COVERED, IT’S AN NNLM EXHIBIT WITH THE USE OF COMICS AND GRAPHIC NOVELS AS A FORM OF COMMUNICATION ABOUT HEALTH THAT’S NEW. GRAPHIC MEDICINE IS THE USE OF COMICS THAT TELL PERSONAL STORIES ABOUT HEALTH AND I THINK IT’S A WONDERFUL GROWING GENRE. SO WE’LL TALK ABOUT LET’S MOVE IN LIBRARIES. I DID NOTICE THAT THERE’S A DOCTOR ON THE WEBINAR AND THIS IS A WEBSITE HE MAINTAINS WHICH IS TO GET PEOPLE OF ALL AGES MOVING. IT AIMS TO SUPPORT HEALTHY COMMUNITIES WITH THEIR IMPRESSIVE REACH AND GREAT POTENTIAL FOR IMPACT. PUBLIC LIBRARIES CAN DO SO MUCH TO IMPACT HEALTH THROUGH STORY WALKS, YOGA, CLASSES. A LOT OF THINGS WE TALKED ABOUT. THE CIRCULATION OF FITNESS EQUIPMENT AND MUCH MORE. THROUGH LET’S MOVE AND LIBRARIES, PUBLIC LIBRARIES CAN COME TOGETHER TO ANSWER THIS CALL TO ACTION. LET’S MOVE RESOURCED INSPIRATION FROM INITIAL OBAMA’S LET’S MOVE INITIATIVE FOCUSSED ON INCREASING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND HEALTHY LIVING AMONG AMERICANS. THEY HAVE ANUS LETTER TO SIGN UP FOR A NEWSLETTER TO SIGN UP FOR AND A LINK IN OUR RESOURCE LIST. AND I FORGOT ONE LAST THING ABOUT LET’S MOVE IN LIBRARY. SOMETHING YOU’LL FIND PARTICULARLY HELPFUL IN THINK ABOUT SAFETY AND LIABILITY IN DOING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY PROGRAMS, THERE’S EXAMPLES OF LIABILITY FORMS YOU CAN DOWNLOAD OFF THE SITE. CHECK WITH YOUR DIRECTOR OR LEGAL COUNSEL IN A LARGER ORGANIZATION BUT HERE’S A JUMPING OFF POINT IN THINKING HOW YOU MIGHT APPROACH THE LEGAL AND LIABILITY END OF THINGS. SO A.L.A. PROGRAMMING LIBRARY PROVIDES THE RESOURCES, CONNECTIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES LIBRARIES NEED TO FILL THEIR ROLES AS A CULTURAL CENTERS. IT’S A PLACE FOR LIBRARY PROFESSIONAL TO SHARE AND LEARN AND FIND OUT ABOUT THE KIND OF PROGRAMMING THAT’S HAPPENING ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THIS A.L.A. RESOURCE FEATURES THREE SOURCES OF IDEAS, PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT, OPPORTUNITIES AS WELL. YOU CAN ALSO SHARE YOUR SUCCESS STORIES. I KNOW SOME OF US IN THE WEBINAR HAVE SHARED SOME THINGS THEY’VE DONE. IF YOU WANT TO SHARE YOUR SUCCESS STORY, THEY’RE WELCOME TO HEARING ABOUT IT AND READING LISTS AND HOW YOU MADE IT HAPPEN AND THERE’S A NEWS LETTER TO SIGN UP FOR. I WANTED TO SHARE THIS AS THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX WHEN IT COMES TO MEETING HEALTH NEEDS. SO THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO REACH AN AUDIENCE ESPECIALLY AN AT-RISK AUDIENCE. I LINKED AN ARTICLE FROM THE ROCKWOOD MAKER SPACE FROM OREGON AND IN THE BATHROOM THEY START THE TO PROVIDE HEALTH INFORMATION AS WELL AS ACTUAL HYGIENE THINGS LIKE DEODORANT AND WHAT NOT TO HELP KIDS IN NEED. IT WAS AN EXCELLENT ARTICLE. AND IT JUST WANTED TO SHARE IT SO WE DON’T ALWAYS THINK ABOUT A PROGRAM AS A BUNCH OF PEOPLE IN SPACE. A PROGRAM OR A SERVICE IF YOU USE THAT LANGUAGE COULD BE ANYTHING. SO ON THE RESOURCE LIST, THERE ARE WAY MORE RESOURCES THAN I COULD TALK ABOUT. BUT AS A FORMER CHILDREN’S LIBRARIAN, I WOULD BE REMISS IF I DIDN’T GET INTO THEM A LITTLE BIT. SO THERE ARE RESOURCES AND SOME ARTICLES THAT I’VE COLLECTED ABOUT HEALTH ISSUES INCLUDING ADDICTION, COPING WITH VIOLENCE AND DEALING WITH THE AFTERMATH OF VIOLENCE AS WELL AS SUICIDE PREVENTION AND BULLYING AND MANY OTHER TOPICS. SO YEAH, I WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU HAD THOSE THOUGH WE DIDN’T HAVE TIME TO COVER THEM TODAY. WE HAVE A FEW MINUTES LEFT. EVERYONE HERE TODAY SIGNED UP FOR THE WEBINAR BY USING OUR WEBSITE. FEEL FREE TO TAKE A LOOK AROUND. IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE TODAY, I TEACH A FEW OTHER CLASS. THERE’S ONE OTHER SCHEDULED WEBINAR COMING UP. FEEL FREE TO BECOME A MEMBER FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION.
