With support from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine – New England Region, a new facilitrainer / health literacy collaborations component has been added to the PL4H program.
Collaborations are designed to support partnerships between facilitrainers and community organizations serving adults with low health literacy and limited English proficiency, especially new immigrants and refugees. The goal is to reduced health disparities by providing health information and education to communities in need.
Public librarians, consumer health librarians, and community-based organizations serving new immigrants and refugee communities are especially encouraged to apply. Please see PL4H Collaborations Scholarship Application for more details, and submit your application online by February 17, 2017. Scholarship letters will be sent out by February 24, 2017.
