An Interprofessional Team Addressing the Health Needs of Public Library Patrons
The Stony Brook Medicine Healthy Libraries Program (HeLP) is an interdisciplinary team of nursing, social work, public health, and library science students whose aim is to provide evidence-based health information, screening, and health management to a diverse community of patrons in a public library setting. Students refer patrons to appropriate local health and social services programs as needed, with the goals of improving overall health and wellness to decrease health disparities. This program has been in effect since the spring of 2020, and there are currently five partnering libraries in Suffolk County, with many more libraries currently requesting the services of the HeLP team.
Gabriella Pandolfelli, HeLP Program Coordinator, will be presenting, along with HeLP interns Meave Gallagher (LIS student), Nicole Malley (LIS student) and Winnie De Los Santos (MPH student).
9:30-10:30 - HeLP Presentation
