The Public Librarian Symposium at the Medical Library Association MLA offers a unique opportunity for public librarians to receive education about health information and provide an introduction to National Library of Medicine resources and the National Network of Libraries' of Medicine. The symposium overlaps with the last day and a half of MLA's annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, and can be followed by an optional half day education boot camp for the Consumer Health Information Specialization CHIS organized by the GMR. The symposium is an opportunity for health information librarians attending the MLA meeting to attend sessions of the track, especially those interested in collaborating with public librarians.
