Health Sciences Librarians Receive NNLM PSR Express Outreach Award

Kathryn Houk, Health Literacy & Community Engagement Librarian, Xan Goodman, Health Sciences Librarian and Laura Valentino, Southern Nevada Health District Academic Affairs Coordinator, received a $7,024 National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Southwest Region Express Outreach Award to support "Building a Healthier Las Vegas through Participatory-Based Creation of Community Health Workforce Training."

The goal of the project is to determine the continuing education and training needs of frontline community health workers in the Las Vegas Valley; particularly in regards to finding, providing, and evaluating appropriate consumer health resources.

The project leaders will use a community-based participatory research approach to determine needs and then design and promote National Network of Libraries of Medicine and other authoritative organizations' online training resources through topical learning guides and incentives such as continuing education credits.
