EVENT: Consumer Health and Health Literacy: What it Means to Librarians

On Thursday, August 13, join BayNet and the Northern California and Nevada Medical Librarians Group (NCNMLG) at the historic Berkeley City Club for an informative and important discussion about how to meet the increasing demand for quality consumer health information. Librarians are also confronting the challenge of working with patrons of widely varying levels of health literacy.

This event will include the perspectives of four experts in the field. The panel discussion will be from 4-6 PM, and include time for networking and learning about these two local library organizations. Registration is $10, and hors d’ouevres will be served. Please register online.
