Becker in the Community - Health Information Training for School Nurses

Consumer Health Librarian Judy Hansen instructs school nurses from Ferguson-Florissant school district on pediatric health information resources.

On October 25th staff from the Becker Library and the St. Louis Children's Hospital Family Resource Center presented a training workshop on health information resources to school nurses from the Ferguson-Florissant school district. Judy Hansen, Consumer Health Librarian at the SLCH Family Resource Center and Becker Library Associate DIrector Bob Engeszer provided an introduction to credible professional and consumer-oriented information resources including MedlinePlus, KidsHealth, and other specialized resources from the National Library of Medicine. Twenty five school nurses from across the district participated in the training which included a combination of demonstrations and hands-on practice. 

The event was part of Becker Library's ongoing Mobile School Health Information (MoSHI) project which was launched In 2010 by a grant from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine to create and deliver a unique curriculum to improve the health information seeking skills of K-12 staff in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
