Workshop offers consumer health information

Published May 1, 2018

Due to popular demand, the Health Sciences Library is offering two more sessions of a free workshop designed to help faculty and staff find reliable, in-depth, easy-to-understand health care information.

The sessions will be held from 3-4:30 p.m. May 8 and May 24 in B2C Abbott Hall, South Campus.

Those attending “Consumer Health: Finding Reliable Health Information for You and Your Family” will be introduced to UB-only databases that offer more advanced medical information and are used by health care providers. They also will receive help in deciphering complex medical terminology. 

UB faculty and staff have access to all of the UB Libraries’ subscription-only resources that are not available to the general public.

The last 30 minutes of each session will be devoted to questions and individual searches.   

The workshops will be taught by Pamela Rose, coordinator of web services and library promotion for the UB Libraries, and a certified consumer health information specialist, level II, and Jeanette Aprile, a student in the Department of Information and Library Science.

Seating is limited; register online. Health care information also is available at the Libraries’ Consumer Health Resources LibGuide
