Recent library outreach to the UNMC community has included visiting outpatient clinics, and a consumer health presentation.
Visiting Nebraska Medicine Clinics
Starting in Fall 2017, McGoogan Library has been reaching out to outpatient clinics to raise awareness of library services that support patient care. We are starting with primary care, and have visited seven clinics so far. During the visit we attend a staff or provider meeting to discuss our Consumer Health Information Resource Service (CHIRS) for patients and families, and highlight library services available to providers and staff. Our next stop will be the Chalco clinic in March! If you would like a librarian to visit your clinic, please contact Christian Minter, Community Engagement & Health Literacy Librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Olson Center Brown Bag Lecture
In January, Marty Magee provided the presentation “They Said It, You Heard It: Health Issues in the Headlines” for the Olson Center Brown Bag Lecture. The presentation featured criteria to evaluate health news shared in the media, and resources to find quality health news stories. You can watch a recording on the UNMC Brown Bag page.
