Participation in the ALA Midwinter Conference's Implicit Bias, Health Disparities and Health Literacy: Intersections in Health Equity session will allow me to deepen my understanding of this topic and how my library and institution can provide better information to the community members we serve. The Noble Learning Resource Center, Shepherd Center's library, has established connections with the Georgia Library for Accessible Statewide Services through the Georgia Public Library System, leveraging this partnership we can provide information to individuals with disabilities in our community in a much more efficient way. Using connections with healthcare providers and patients I can provide information through our library and in outreach events to promote health literacy for this vulnerable population.
