Staff from the Mario E. Ramirez, MD Library recently participated in two unique outreach events in the Rio Grande Valley. Graciela Reyna and Kathy Carter conducted a presentation on “National Library of Medicine Resources for the Forensic Sciences” at the 6th Annual Seminar in Forensic Sciences on November 13th. Annually, this conference seeks to provide a multidisciplinary group of professionals tools to assist with prevention, intervention and investigations of child abuse. The library also provided an exhibit and hands-on demonstrations of National Library of Medicine resources.
In addition, NLM resources were publicized to over 200 attendees at the 2009 Midwest Stream Farmworkers Forum, November 19-20. Sponsored by the National Center for Farmworker Health, the forum brought together health care providers and educators, administrators, students, researchers, and farmworkers from across the U.S. to share ideas on health care delivery for the farmworker population.
