Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about MedlinePlus and NIH Environmental Health Sciences from the National Library of Medicine through informational sessions held during the health fair. Emphasis will be on bringing awareness to the availability of health information through technology using Smart phones, tablets and personal computers.
