Human Genetics Film Series for Public Libraries

The NNLM Community Engagement Center CEC has been awarded an amount of $181,857 to pilot a human genetics program-in-a-kit film series, in cooperation with the Iowa Institute of Human Genetics IIHG, for public libraries. The NNLM will send approximately 250 film kits to small and 95 libraries, in cooperation with the Association of 95 and Small Libraries ARSL and the Public Libraries Association PLA. The purpose of this activity is to educate the public about human genetics, raise awareness of the NIH Research Program 71 and encourage public libraries to become members of NNLM.
