Did you know Wikipedia’s health information is used by 50-70 percent of all physicians and over 94 percent of med students? Let’s make sure health information Wikipedia articles are reliable! Join your colleagues and NNLM staff for a live editing session on Wednesday, April 24, 2024 from 2-4 PM ET to chat about Wikipedia, edit articles, and connect with the #CiteNLM Wikipedia edit-a-thon community. No prior experience required!  NLM_NIH resources such as MedlinePlus and PubMed will be cited. We will be editing articles on complementary and integrative health.

For more information on the event see the #CiteNLM Edit-a-thon Resource Guide.

We suggest creating a free Wikipedia user account and joining the #CiteNLM Virtual Edit-a-thon Dashboard before the live event!

This session will provide captioning and utilize breakout rooms. Contact nto@utah.edu if you are in need of live captioning for the breakout room session. 

This event addresses increasing health equity through information and the NNLM initiative of citizen science by engaging communities in editing Wikipedia health-related articles with well-sourced additions.
