The Savitt Medical Library will be a host site for the National Library of Medicines NLM Native Voices Traveling Exhibit. The Library will use funding to work with Native American communities in Northern Nevada to plan events surrounding the exhibit, including an opening reception and a speaker event. The speaker event will be on Food Sovereignty and Native American Nutrition. These events and the exhibit will be promoted to local Native American communities, the University community, and to Northern Nevada clinicians. During the speaker events, a display and promotional materials for NLM online resources e.g., MedlinePlus, HealthReach, will be featured.
