Title: Reenvisioning a Health Future: Focusing on a Regional Health Institute
Objective: This poster documents program support for a regional health institute whose mission is to improve the health, education, environment, and prosperity for residents by collaborating across communities and organizations, generating and implementing new ideas, and engaging the social, economic, and scientific issues that exist at the interface of health and the culture.
Methods: The outreach librarian accepted an invitation by the institute to become a founding faculty member. Through involvement in planning and implementation of early projects, the librarian provided informational assistance for institute student-fellows and research for the institute's community coordinator as well as local college faculty institute members. Other support includes assistance with archiving institute materials, contributions to website resources, and community informational support for participants in student programs. As a leadership council for new projects develops, information support will be provided. A community-based research focus is under discussion and will be given informational support. Documentation of previous community research is underway by the outreach librarian to determine the extent of regionally focused community research.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
