Consumer Health Resource Tutorials

Video Tutorials and Resources for Consumer Health Resources

In partnership with several Health Science Librarians at Stony Brook University and the RASD Health Concerns Committee, the following tutorial was created on consumer health resources for public librarians in Suffolk County and public library school students in conjunction with hands on workshops offered in early 2018. Additional resources now discontinued or migrated into another resource were covered and tutorials created but have since been removed form this topic guide. Funding for the workshops and tutorials was awarded by the Health Information Awareness Award by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institutes of Health (NIH).
