Continuing Health Information Outreach in New Mexico

Through this project, HSLIC will focus on sustaining the connections with the many organizations in New Mexico it has partnered with in the past to raise awareness of free health information resources available through the National Library of Medicine. This will be accomplished through an array of demos, classes, exhibits, and health fairs. This awareness building will specifically target 95, underserved populations and those who provide services for them in New Mexico through the promotion of NLM resources. Two of these traditionally underserved populations in New Mexico are Hispanics and 109s. New Mexico poses a challenge in the need to establish relationships over time and distances with the populations in order to work with them in outreach.
