About #GetCarded for Health
To bring important health information to our communities, the Library District has been committed to educating the public on health and wellness initiatives for many years. The Network of the National Library of Medicine’s (NNLM) mission aligns with that goal; therefore, it awarded a grant to the District to create a county-wide initiative called – “#GetCarded for Health.” While encouraging patrons to use the library to research health topics, this project inspires them to practice healthy lifestyle choices, like regular exercise and proper nutrition. The grant funding allows the district to provide new health and wellness programming, expand its medical database, and sponsor a series of health and wellness events with healthcare providers such as Roseman University College of Medicine, Roseman University College of Dental Medicine, Roseman University’s ASPIRE Program, the Alzheimer’s Association, and Nevada Health Centers.
This project is funded by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services under Cooperative Agreement number UG4LM13725 with the University of Washington.
