OurSpace World: Sowing Health, Building Community February 28, 2023

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 NNLM 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.
