Starting in 2021, I'm going to archive slides and handouts from library workshops designed for the YSPH community here. I'm not promising to keep these slidedecks updated with new information, though!
To observe National Public Health Week 2020, join public health librarian Kate Nyhan any day, 2:30-3pm, for a videochat about public health literature, information, and data. We'll talk about online resources you can access from anywhere to learn about the NPHW 2020 themes:
Monday -- mental health
Tuesday -- maternal and child health
Wednesday -- violence prevention
Thursday -- environmental health
Friday -- education
We'll pay special attention to free-to-read scholarly and grey literature, and we can (but don't have to) look at the themes through a COVID-19 lens. So: join us for one or all of these informal video chats to discuss evidence-based public health!
Join Cushing/Whitney Medical Library to celebrate National Public Health Week 2019! We're hosting five hands-on workshops to improve your literature searching skills. Suggest a research question related to the themes by emailing public health librarian email@example.com. After any session, you'll be able to use special PubMed features to do fast, more effective literature searches about the topics you care about.
Follow these links to register for the session that fits your schedule or the session on your favorite topic.

In 2018, we celebrated National Public Health Week with workshops tailored to each day's theme. Check out the handouts here for examples of simple, effective PubMed queries. You can use these searches, or you can use the worksheet to create a new one for your own topic.
