U.S. National Library of Medicine Visits JC Library

 

   Happy New Year from Johnson City Library!  If one of your resolutions for 2018 is to look younger, feel better and live longer you won’t want to miss the upcoming program on Tuesday, January 16, at 6:00 pm at the library.  Our guest presenter Brian Leaf is the Community Engagement Coordinator for the U.S. National Library of Medicine South Central Region in Fort Worth.  The NNLM South Central Region aims to advance the progress of medicine and improve public health through increased access to health information.  To this goal, the organization extends services and programs by partnering with health information agencies, health organizations, public health entities, community based organizations, libraries and the general public to offer outreach, funding opportunities and educational programming throughout their five state region. It is ,of course, a library and houses a huge collection of books on health and medicine.  If you ever want to meet people who are happy with their work, visit the Library of Medicine in Ft. Worth. 

  Mr. Leaf’s program, “Healthy Aging @ Your Library:  Connecting to Healthy Information”, emphasizes accessibility to health information and where to find these resources. We will get hands-on and learn how to navigate through some websites that provide help in achieving health literacy. What is health literacy? The degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions.  Improving your health literacy will improve your ability to make good decisions and to be an active participant, along with medical professionals, in your own healthcare.  This is an important program for everyone that can empowers us in situations where we are often most vulnerable.  Everyone is invited, the program is free and refreshments will be served.  Come and bring a friend!

THE LIBRARY IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE LOAN ON THE NEW LIBRARY HAS BEEN PAID IN FULL!
