OurSpace World: Sowing Health, Building Community Data on health disparities point to a great need for improved access to health information in Black communities. As they are learning about subjects like food, health, and the environment, Black, Indigenous and other People of Color (BIPOC) youth need to see themselves in the books they read (termed curricular "mirrors"). In 2021, OurSpace World, Inc. received a Health Information Outreach Award from NNLM Region 1 Mirror Resources for Health, Food, and Environment to address this need.

This webinar/session will provide an opportunity to learn about this project, the online repository produced, the intersecting challenges the team sought to address, and ongoing related initiatives at the local, regional and national levels.

The project's goals were to use NLM resources (e.g., MEDLINE, MedlinePlus, PubMed) to create a public online repository of resources containing materials representative of Black/African and Latinx youth of color, centered around agriculture, farming, food, health, environmental health and environmental justice.

Systemic Racism in Science Communication The importance of increasing public understanding of scientific issues, like the environment and health, is rising. As a result, scientists are learning the importance of making their work more accessible. But at the same time, there are still marginalized communities that aren't well served by mainstream science media and traditional educational systems. In addition, women and people of color face long-lived cultural and societal prejudices perpetuating inequality. By directly involving specific communities in the science communication processes, addressing issues of increasing importance to the communities, and presenting scientific role models and spokespersons from within those communities, we can begin to ensure that science communication and education are really available and accessible to all. 1.50 On
Libraries as Hubs for Citizen Science: Partnering with Academia to Improve the Health of Communities Radon is a leading cause of lung cancer. Many living in rural communities lack access to home radon testing and adequate and affordable mitigation.

Community-academic partnerships provide opportunities to achieve health equity by drawing upon respective strengths, expertise, and local knowledge. Logan County (Kentucky) Public Library will discuss its innovative partnership with the University of Kentucky to engage community members as citizen scientists and develop a novel library lending program for digital home radon detectors to reduce barriers to home radon testing in four rural counties (R01ES030380).

Preliminary data evaluating the program will be presented.
