Public Health Information Resources: NPHW 2020

Guide to selected resources in Public Health


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!
