Funding for Health Outreach to Decrease Health Disparities!

Funding for Health Outreach to Decrease Health Disparities!
Posted By: Nancy Patterson on January 16, 2019

This message is for institutions in Alabama, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, the US Virgin Islands, Virginia and West Virginia.

The attached PDF is hyperlinked to provide quick access to National Network of Libraries of Medicine links for more information. Our new cycle of funding will be open for application in February and we are trying to get the word out - Please feel free to share the attached PDF with anyone in the region.

We are the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM), a collaborative group of libraries and other organizations dedicated to improving the health literacy of our communities through promotion of reliable health information resources and instruction on how to use them. We serve everyone from all spectrums of the health care transaction – from health professionals to patients. Membership and all services are FREE!

NNLM is one of the outreach arms of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and is divided into 8 regions across the country.



We are the Southeastern/Atlantic region and we serve these states and territories:

Alabama, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, the US Virgin Islands, Virginia and West Virginia
[If you’re from another state, find your regional contacts via a link in the attached PDF.]
