Are You Ready? Essential Disaster Health Information Resources for Keeping Your Loved Ones Safe


>>HI, EVERYONE. THIS IS MICHELLE BURDA FROM NNLMR AND I’M YOUR PRESENTER TODAY. THE PRESENTATION WILL BE RECORDED AND PUT UP ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR A FEW WEEKS AND IF YOU WANT THE ACTUAL POWER POINT SLIDES I CAN SEND THOSE OUT TO YOU IF YOU REQUEST THEM. THE CLASS TODAY IS ELIGIBLE FOR ONE MLA CE AND FOR THE DISASTER SPECIALIZATION THE ADVANCED SPECIALIZATION YOU CAN ALSO GET ONE MLA CE TOWARD THAT. SO TO BEGIN WITH FOR TODAY’ SESSION, THE PURPOSE OF THE SESSION IS TO RAISE AWARENESS AND RESOURCES AVAILABLE FOR DISASTER HEALTH INFORMATION. AND I’M GOING TO REVIEW TODAY RESOURCES FOR SPECIFIC POPULATIONS AND ALSO SOME SPECIFIC RESOURCES FOR POPULATIONS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS. THESE ARE THE OBJECTIVES FOR TODAY. I HOPE BY THE END OF THIS SESSION YOU’LL BE ABLE TO LOCATE THE DISASTER AND EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION FOR SPECIAL POPULATION. ANYONE WHO HAS A DISABILITY. AT THE VERY END I HAVE A SLIDE WITH APPS FOR DISASTER AND EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS. AND ANOTHER THING ABOUT THE PRESENTATION TODAY, I WILL HAVE MULTIPLE SLIDES, RESOURCE SLIDES THAT I WON’T TALK ABOUT BUT I JUST WANTED YOU TO HAVE THAT INFORMATION AND ALSO I HAVE PROBABLY MORE SLIDES THAN I’LL BE I’LL TO DISCUSS BUT AGAIN I DID THAT ON PURPOSE BECAUSE I WANTED YOU TO HAVE THAT INFORMATION. THIS IS THE AGENDA. THIS IS HOW THE SESSION WILL PROCEED. I’M GOING TALK ABOUT DISASTER INFORMATION MANAGEMENT RESEARCH CENTER OTHERWISE KNOWN AS DIMRC IS HOW I’LL REFER TO IT FROM NOW ON AND A SPECIFIC DATABASE CALLED DISASTER LIT. AND TALK ABOUT INFORMATION FROM OTHER RESOURCE AND THEN GO TO MEDLINE PLUS AND I’LL DO A DEMO. I SLIDES OF HOW TO FIND INFORMATION. WE AREN’T DOING LIVE DEMOS TODAY. I’LL TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA AND HEALTH LITERACY ISSUES. SO THIS SLIDE HAS INFORMATION FROM A SURVEY DONE IN 2017 AND IT WAS PUBLISHED IN OCTOBER OF THE
SURVEY WAS THE AMERICAN HOUSING SURVEY AND WITH US SPONSORED BY TO THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AN URBAN DEVELOPMENT. THEY DO THIS SURVEY EVERY ODD YEAR IN THE METROPOLITAN AREAS. BUT I THINK IT’S VERY INTERESTING TO SEE HOW PREPARED WE ARE. AND SOME OF THE RESULTS I PULLED FROM THAT AND I WANT TO KNOW IS THIS YOU? MANY OF US THOUGH I HAVE TO TELL YOU TO BE HONEST, THOUGH I HAVE DONE THIS CLASS MULTIPLE TIMES AND KNOW WHAT I SHOULD DO FOR PREPAREDNESS, I DON’T ALWAYS DO ALL THE THINGS THAT WE SHOULD DO. I THINK IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE MORE THAN 40% OF THE PEOPLE WHO TOOK THAT SURVEY DO NOT HAVE THREE GALLONS OR 24 BOTTLES OF WATER FOR EACH PERSON IN THE HOUSEHOLD. ALSO, 48% LACK EMERGENCY SUPPLIES. AND MORE THAN 60% OF PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE DESIGNATED MEETING PLACES IN CASE OF A DISASTER. I THINK MORE TELLING IS 75% DO NOT HAVE A CONTINGENCY PLAN IN CASE OF DISRUPTION OF CELL SERVICE. ONE THING I’D LIKE TO ASK ALL OF YOU AND YOU COULD EITHER PUT THIS IN THE CHAT BOX OR ANSWER IT TO YOURSELF, IF YOU DON’T HAVE CELL SERVICE, DO YOU HAVE A LIST OF PHONE NUMBERS, ACTUAL PHONE NUMBERS YOU COULD CONTACT SOMEONE? BECAUSE SO MANY OF US NOW DEPEND ON OUR CELL PHONES AND HAVING THE NUMBERS IN THERE THAT WE AUTOMATICALLY DIAL MOST CAN’T DIAL OR REMEMBER THE NUMBER. THAT’S SOMETHING TO IMPORTANT TO HAVE EITHER A PIECE OF PAPER IN YOUR WALLET OR SOMEWHERE IN CASE YOU DON’T HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AND YOU NEED TO GET A HOLD OF YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS OR CAREGIVERS OR PEOPLE WHO ARE TABLING CARE OF YOUR CHILDREN SO THINK ABOUT THAT AND ALSO THINK ABOUT A MEETING PLACE. WE TALK ABOUT DISASTERS BUT THAT’S ALSO IN THE CASE OF EMERGENCY. WHAT IF YOU WERE TRYING TO GET HOME AND YOUR STREET WAS BLOCKED OR THE DAYCARE CENTER AREA WAS BLOCKED. WHAT IS YOUR CONTINGENCY PLAN AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO IN THAT CASE? THOSE ARE SOME OF THE EVERYDAY TYPE OF THINGS TO THINK ABOUT. NOW I’M GOING TALK ABOUT THE RESOURCES AND THESE ARE OUR KEY PLAYERS. THESE ARE ORGANIZATIONS AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES THAT MOST PEOPLE ARE FAMILIAR WITH OR HAVE HEARD THOSE TERMS. THE ONE THAT I THINK YOU PROBABLY ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH IS DIMRC THE DISASTER INFORMATION MANAGEMENT RESEARCH CENTER FRUSTRATE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE. ONE OTHER THING I WILL ANSWER THE QUESTIONS AT THE END SO AS I’M TALKING AND AS THINGS COME UP, PLEASE PUT YOUR QUESTIONS IN THE CHAT BOX. AND I WILL TALK ABOUT WHAT EMERGENCY SUPPLIES ARE LATER ON. THERE’S AN INFO GRAPHIC WITH THOSE ON. SO SOME OF THE MAJOR PLAYERS ARE FOR ONE THE C.D.C. THAT’S OUR CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION. YOU CAN FIND SPECIFIC DISASTER EVENT INFORMATION ON SPECIFIC DISASTER EVENTS LIKE FLOODING AND THINGS LIKE THAT FOR CONSUMER AUDIENCE. AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU, THE SLANT OF THEIR INFORMATION IS REALLY TOWARDS HEALTH EFFECTS AND CONTAINING INFECTIOUS AGENTS. THE NEXT ONE IS DIMRC THE DISASTER INFORMATION MANAGEMENT RESEARCH CENTER AND IT’S A PORTAL FOR INFORMATION FOR MULTIPLE AUDIENCES. IT’S ALSO A GREAT PLACE TO START. DIMRC IS AN AGGREGATOR OF ALL THE DISASTER AND HEALTH INFORMATION FROM DIFFERENT GOVERNMENT RESOURCES. FEMA AS WE KNOW WE HAVE PROBABLY ALL HEARD THAT IN THE PAST YEAR OR SO. THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY AND ALSO CONTAIN INFORMATION ON SPECIFIC DISASTER EVENTS FOR A CONSUMER AUDIENCE. AND THEY ARE HAVE AUDIO AND VIDEO AVAILABLE TOO THAT CONTENT IS AVAILABLE IN AUDIO AND VIDEO AND THEY’VE ALSO STARTED TO PUT UP MORE INFORMATION IN MULTIPLE LANGUAGES. MEDLINE PLUS WAS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR A CONSUMER AUDIENCE AND IT CONTAINS AN OVERVIEW OF SPECIFIC DISASTERS AND IMPORTANT HEALTH INFORMATION RELATED TO THOSE EVENTS. AGAIN, I WOULD CALL THIS A PORTAL WITH LINKS TO OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCY. IT’S PRODUCED BY THE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE FOR THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. AND I’LL BE TALKING ABOUT THAT MORE IN DEPTH LATER ON. WE HAVE THE RED CROSS AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE P.H.E. WHICH STANDS FOR PUBLIC HEALTH INFORMATION WEBSITE AND THIS IS FROM THE OFFICE OF THE ASSISTANT SECRETARY FOR PREPAREDNESS RESPONSE. ANOTHER PORTAL TO GOVERNMENT INFORMATION OR PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSES TO PUBLIC HEALTH EVENTS. SO WHAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE IS THE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE HAS NUMEROUS RESOURCES AN DATABASES COVERING HEALTH AND MEDICAL TOPICS. USUALLY WHEN I GO OUT AND TALK TO PEOPLE I’LL ASK THEM WHAT NLM RESOURCES DO YOU USE AND THE MOST COMMON ANSWER IS PUBMED AND THEN MEDLINE PLUS WOULD BE A SECOND. BUT A LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT THIS CENTER IN FLOOR PRODUCES DISASTER HEALTH INFORMATION. A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS BACKGROUND. I THINK THE HISTORY OF THIS IS IMPORTANT. NLM HAS A LONG HISTORY OF PROVIDING HEALTH INFORMATION TO PREPARE AND RESPOND TO ALL TYPES OF DISASTER AND HAS DEVELOPED A NUMBER OF TOOLS. NLM PROVIDED INFORMATION WITH THE GAS LEAK IN 1984 AND HELPED CREATE LOCAL DISASTER INFORMATION CENTERS FOLLOWING HURRICANE MITCH IN CENTRAL AMERICA. THEY ALSO PRODUCED SOMETHING CALLED WISER WHICH IS A WIRELESS AGENCY INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR EMERGENCY RESPONDERS MANY OF OUR FIRST RESPONDERS USE AND DISASTER MANAGEMENT PEOPLE USE. MORE RECENTLY, NLM ASSISTED PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS RESPONDING TO EBOLA AND IF YOU WENT TO THIS SITE YOU’D SEE LOTS OF INFORMATION AND LOTS OF RESOURCES TO EBOLA INFORMATION AND ALSO AND HURRICANE SANDY AND THE GULF OF MEXICO OIL SPILL AND ALSO THE FLOODING IN UNFORTUNATELY THE FIRES IN CALIFORNIA. ALL THAT TYPE OF INFORMATION COULD BE FOUND HERE FOR THE PUBLIC AND FOR PROFESSIONALS. I WANTED TO GO INTO WHAT COULD BE FOUND THERE. IF I WAS IN SPECIAL TOPICS ONCE IN I WOULD CLICK ON COPING WITH DISASTERS AND HEALTH INFORMATION GUIDE. ONE THING I’D LIKE TO POINT OUT IS WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE RED ARROW IS POINTING TO THE DISASTER DISTRESS HELP LINE. THERE’S A PHONE NUMBER THERE AND THERE’S A WAY TO TEXT. NEXT I’M GOING LOOK AT A SPECIFIC AUDIENCE AND WE’RE GOING TO LOOK AT PREGNANT WOMAN IN DISASTERS AND CHILDREN. ANOTHER THING I WANT TO POINT OUT IS THE ACCESS AND FUNCTIONAL NEEDS POPULATIONS. SOMETIMES IN DISASTERS PEOPLE MAY NOT IDENTIFY THEMSELVES AS HAVING A DISABILITY BUT MAY DURING TIMES OF DISASTERS OR EMERGENCY HAVE FUNCTIONAL NEEDS. IN DISASTER PREPAREDNESS THE TERM FUNCTIONAL NEED POPULATION IS USED TO DEFINE GROUPS WHOSE NEEDS ARE NOT FULLY ADDRESSED BY TRADITIONAL SERVICE PROVIDERS. THEY ARE PEOPLE WHO COULD HAVE MULTIPLE IMPAIRMENTS. SOME ARE PEOPLE WITH DEVELOPMENT DISABILITIES, OLDER ADULTS, CHILDREN, PREGNANT WOMEN, PEOPLE WITH CHRONIC CONDITIONS OR INJURIES OR PEOPLE WITH LIMITED ENGLISH PROFICIENCY. WHEN SOMEONE REFERS TO A.F.N., THAT’S WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. SO AS A SAID, WE’RE GOING TO LOOK AT SPECIFIC GROUPS WITHIN THE DISASTER LIT AND I’M GOING TO LOOK AT CHILDREN AND PREGNANT WOMEN AND WE’RE GOING TO LOOK AT THAT INFORMATION BY TOPIC AREA. IF I WOULD CLICK ON THE PREGNANT WOMEN LINK, THIS IS WHAT YOU’LL SEE. ALL PAGES ARE CONSTRUCTED THIS WAY. HAVE YOU ALL TOPICS THEN YOU HAVE NATURAL DISASTERS AND WE’LL BE INTERESTED IN SPECIAL TOPICS IN KEY ORGANIZATIONS AND AGENCIES. AND WE’RE GOING TO LOOK AT DISASTER LIT THIS WAS A SEARCH DONE AND A SEARCH DONE IN DISASTER LIT. I THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO SEE THE ACTUAL RECORD. AS YOU CAN SEE, IT ALWAYS GIVES YOU THE SOURCE AND DATE OF PUBLICATION AND FORMAT. IN PARTICULAR THIS WAS A WEBINAR AND THE LINK TO THE WEBINAR. AND I THINK ANOTHER IMPORTANT THING TO POINT OUT IS NORMALLY IT’S DIFFICULT TO FIND OUT THIS TYPE OF INFORMATION LIKE TRAINING MATERIALS, WEBINARS, TOOL KITS GUIDELINES, THINGS LIKE THAT. SO THAT’S WHAT WE CALL GRAY LITERATURE. NORMALLY, THOSE ARE THINGS THAT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO FIND IN PUBMED. SO THAT’S WHY THIS DATABASE WAS CREATED. SO OTHER SOURCES FOR PREGNANT WOMEN AND MOTHERS OF INFANTS. I WANTED IN PARTICULAR TO POINT OUT THIS SPECIAL GROUP BECAUSE IN TIMES OF DISASTER, THEY THERE MAY BE SPECIAL CARE THAT THEY’LL NEED AND IF SOMEONE IS HELPING THEM OR CAREGIVER IS HELPING THEM OR A FAMILY MEMBER’S HELPING AND WHAT THEY NEED TO KNOW IN THE EVENT OF GETTING READY FOR AN EMERGENCY OR DISASTER, HERE’S SOME REALLY GOOD RESOURCES. THIS ONE IN PARTICULAR FOR MEDLINE PLUS AND IT CAME FROM THE C.D.C. WAS ABOUT WILDFIRES AND INFORMATION FOR PREGNANT WOMEN DURING THOSE DISASTERS. THE NEXT AUDIENCE I WANT TO TALK ABOUT SPECIAL POPULATIONS IS CHILDREN. BECAUSE DURING A DISASTER, WE KNOW TOO CHILDREN WILL NEED SPECIAL CARE. I DID A SEARCH IN DISASTER LIT FOR SOME INFORMATION ABOUT SOME TOPICS WE COULD SEE THAT WE WOULD FIND RESOURCES FOR HERE. I DID A SEARCH ON CHILDCARE AND YOU CAN SEE WHAT THE RECORD LOOKS LIKE. THE FIRST ONE IS CHILDCARE EMERGENCY SUPPLY KITS AND WHAT TO PACK AND WHERE IT’S AT. AND ALONG THE LEFT-HAND SIDE THERE ARE WAYS TO REFINE YOUR SEARCH. ALSO IF YOU WANTED TO LOOK AT SPECIFIC TYPES OR SPECIFIC AGENCIES THERE’S A WAY TO FILTER THOSE RESULTS. AND THE OTHER ONE I THINK WAS INTERESTING THAT MAY BE HARD FOR YOU TO READ AND THE SECOND ONE, NUMBER 12 WAS DISASTER PLANNING INFANT AND CHILD FEEDING. AGAIN, THIS CAME FROM THE C.D.C. AND THE WEB PAGE PROVIDES TIPS FOR FEEDING CHILDREN SAFELY WHEN DISASTER STRIKES. SO AGAIN, THESE ARE TOPICS YOU MAY NOT HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT OR YOU’RE DOING A PROGRAM FOR YOUR COMMUNITY, THIS WOULD BE A GOOD RESOURCE FOR FINDING THAT TYPE OF INFORMATION. ANOTHER RECORD THIS WAS ONE NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH, CHILDREN AND CHILD HEALTH EMERGENCIES. AGAIN, THIS WITH US ANOTHER WEBINAR AND THE RECORDING IS THERE. THIS PARTICULAR SITE CAME FROM AND I CHOSE THIS AND CAME FROM A PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN FROM ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA AND I CHOSE IT FOR THE ACRONYM THEY CAME UP WITH, KIDS IN DISASTERS. ANYBODY LOOKING FOR A PROGRAM TITLE THIS WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE INVITING. AND SOME OF THE THINGS YOU COULD FIND HERE AND SOME THINGS YOU NEED TO THINK ABOUT ARE WE PREPARED FOR OUR KIDS AND WHAT ARE SOME THINGS WE NEED TO DO IF WE HAVE CHILDREN. AGAIN, THIS INFORMATION CAME FROM READY.gov. IN PARTICULAR, THERE ARE LINKS ON THE PAGE FOR PARENTS AND GAMES YOU COULD PLAY WITH CHILDREN TO GET THEM READY AND I HAVE MORE SLIDES ON THAT AND THERE’S INFORMATION FOR EDUCATORS. THAT’S FROM THE READY.gov PAGE. I’LL FOCUS ON THAT A LITTLE BIT LATER. SO THIS IS AN EXAMPLE FROM THE NATIONAL CHILD TRAUMA STRESS NETWORK CALLED TRINKA AND SAM. THIS SAY PDF OF A STORY BOOK AND GOOD TEACHING TOOL TO HELP CHILDREN COPE DURING A STORM OR HAVE THEM NOT BE AS FRIGHTENED. THEY CAN BE COLORING THIS AS YOU’RE HAVING A CONVERSATION WITH THEM ABOUT WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN ON A WINDY DAY OR IF THEY’RE HEAVY RAIN AND STORMS, WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN AND HOW YOU CAN PREPARE THEM. THIS IS ACTUALLY A VERY NICE GAME AND ONE OF MY FAVORITE TEACHING TOOLS IS DISASTER HERO. THIS WAS FUNDED BY THE FEMA IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF EMERGENCY PHYSICIANS AND IT’S AN ONLINE GAME TO HELP KIDS LEARN ABOUT WHAT TO DO BEFORE AND DURING AND AFTER EARTHQUAKES AND FLOODS. IT WAS QUITE EXTENSIVE THE WORK THAT WENT INTO THIS. KIDS CAN DECIDE WHICH HERO THEY WANT TO BECOME AND DEPENDING ON THE HERO THEY CHOOSE THEY CAN LEARN ABOUT DISASTER OR FLOODS OR HURRICANES AND DIFFERENT DISASTERS LIKE THAT. FROM READY.gov, THIS IS THEIR VERSION OF A GAME. THIS GAME ALSO HAS PARTICULAR INFORMATION FOR AUDIENCES LIKE FOR THE KIDS, PARENTS AND EDUCATORS. THIS WAS KIND OF NEAT. I LIKE THIS ONE TOO. THIS IS HOW TO BUILD A KIT FOR A DISASTER AND WHAT YOU NEED TO HAVE IN IT AND IT’S AN INTERACTIVE GAME. AND HOW THAT WORKS IS YOU CHOOSE SOMETHING IN THIS PICTURE AND IT WILL RESPOND TO YOU AND EITHER SAY, YOU GOT IT RIGHT IF YOU CHOOSE LIKE THE SOCKS AND THE WARM CLOTHES AND SHOES BUT IF YOU WERE TO CHOOSE THE FISH BOWL IT WOULD SAY, UH-OH, YOU PICKED SOMETHING THAT MAY TAKE UP TOO MUCH SPACE. IT’S ANOTHER FUN, INTERACTIVE WAY TO GET KIDS THINKING ABOUT WHAT THEY NEED IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY AND THEY MAKE IT FUN. THESE ARE TWO APPS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR CHILDREN. ONE IS FROM THE RED CROSS AND THE OTHER ONE WAS DESIGNED BY THE C.D.C. THIS IS JUST A RESOURCE PAGE AND WANTED TO SHOW YOU THE AGENCIES AN TOPICS WHERE TO GET ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR CHILDREN. THESE ARE SOME OF THE KEY ORGANIZATIONS AND AGENCIES ALSO YOU CAN GO TO FIND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. WE HAVE THE EMERGENCY NURSES ASSOCIATION AND AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRIC AND STATE AND LOCAL PLACES TO FIND INFORMATION AND YOU CAN CLICK ON THE LINK TO FIND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. WE’RE GOING MOVE ON NEXT TO THE INFORMATION FOR NEEDS FOR OLDER ADULTS AND SENIORS. BEFORE I DO THAT, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT MEDLINE PLUS. IF YOU’RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH MEDLINE PLUS. IT’S THE AUTHORITATIVE UP-TO-DATE WEBSITE PRODUCED BY THE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE FOR NIH. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT RESOURCE FOR ANYONE WHO PROVIDES HEALTH INFORMATION TO THEM OR THEIR COMMUNITY. AND THE PAGE IS FORMATTED. EVERY PAGE IS FORMATTED IN THE SAME WAY. YOU SEE A LOT OF WHITE SPACE HERE. THEY’RE USING A LOT OF COLOR. THEY’RE USING ICONS. THAT MAKES IT EASY FOR PEOPLE TO MANIPULATE AND MOVE AROUND IN. IF I WAS LOOKING FOR HEALTH INFORMATION IN MEDLINE PLUS FOR DISASTERS, WE DO HAVE A TOPICS PAGE. IT COMES UNDER HEALTH AND WELLNESS AND IF YOU CLICK ON DISASTERS, THIS IS WHAT THE PAGE WOULD LOOK LIKE. THERE’S ALWAYS A SUMMARY AND PARTICULAR AREAS FOR VIDEOS AND TUTORIALS AN GAMES ON THIS AND FOR PARTICULAR INFORMATIONS AND WE WANTED TO LOOK FOR INFORMATION FOR SENIORS. HERE’S A GOOD EXAMPLE OF AN EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS KIT. AS I SAID, THERE’S VIDEOS AND TUTORIALS. THESE ARE IN SPANISH AND THESE ARE THE TOPICS YOU CAN FIND. MEDLINE PLUS, THE WINTER WEATHER EMERGENCIES IS ANOTHER TOPIC PAGE AND CONSIDERING THIS WEATHER WE HAD ON THE EAST COAST THIS IS VERY TIMELY. IF YOU NEED HEALTH INFORMATION ON DISASTERS HEALTH INFORMATION TOPICS, YOU CAN FIND INFORMATION HERE IN OTHER LANGUAGES AND IN PARTICULAR FOR THE WINTER WEATHER EMERGENCIES YOU CAN SEE THE LANGUAGES REPRESENTED HERE. AND ONE NICE THING ABOUT THE INFORMATION IN THESE MULTIPLE LANGUAGES THAT YOU’LL HAVE AN ENGLISH VERSION AND THE VERSION OF THAT LANGUAGE SO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS YOU’RE GIVING TO PEOPLE. SO IF I’M IN MEDLINE PLUS AND CLICKED ON THE HEALTH TOPICS, DISASTER PREPARATION AND RECOVERY, I HAD CLICKED ON THE INFORMATION ON A PARTICULAR GROUP FOR SENIORS AND THIS IS SOME OF THE INFORMATION THAT I WOULD FIND AND THE ONE I PARTICULARLY WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT IS HOME SAFETY FOR PEOPLE WITH ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE. WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOU’RE A CAREGIVER OR SOMEONE WHO HAS ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE, HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR A DISASTER OR EMERGENCY AND THE INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND HERE AND ALSO YOU CAN ENROLL THEM IN SOMETHING CALLED MEDIC ALERT FROM THE ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION SAFE RETURN PROGRAM. THIS WAS PRODUCED BY THE RED CROSS FOR SENIORS AND PRODUCED BY SENIORS AND IT’S A REALLY NICE BROCHURE BOOKLET THAT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE IF YOU’RE DOING A PROGRAM FOR SENIORS OR CAREGIVERS OF SENIORS. I’M JUST REMINDING YOU AGAIN OF WHAT ACCESS AND FUNCTIONAL NEEDS ARE AND WHO THOSE INDIVIDUALS ARE AS WE GO INTO SPECIAL NEEDS PARTICULAR SPECIAL NEEDS POPULATIONS. I’M GOING TO TALK ABOUT RESOURCES FOR DISABILITIES IN GENERAL AND THEN WE’LL LOOK AT THE PARTICULAR INFORMATION FOR THOSE THAT HAVE HEARING IMPAIRED OR VISUALLY IMPAIRED OR HAVE DIABETES. SO THIS WOULD BE ONE OF MY GO-TO SITES AND I’D PROBABLY GO THERE FIRST LOOKING FOR INFORMATION FOR DISASTER HEALTH INFORMATION FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE SOME TYPE OF DISABILITY. HERE YOU CAN SEE DISABILITIES ARE ACCESS AND FUNCTIONAL NEEDS. THAT’S THE KIND OF INFORMATION YOU WOULD FIND HERE. THERE ARE DOWNLOADABLE GUIDES AND RESOURCES. THAT ONE YOU WENT TO SPEND MORE TIME ON. THIS IS JUST AN AWARENESS AND TO INTRODUCE YOU TO SOME BASIC INFORMATION FOR DISASTER EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS. SO IF YOU WOULD HAVE SOMEONE VISUALLY IMPAIRED AND YOU NEED INFORMATION FOR THEM, YOU’RE PUTTING ON A PROGRAM FOR THIS PARTICULAR AUDIENCE OR HAVE SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY OR DOING COMMUNITY OUTREACH, THIS WOULD BE A PLACE TO START. WE HAVE ONE FOR NEW JERSEY COUNCIL FOR THE BLIND WHO HAS A NICE HANDBOOK AND EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS FOR SERVICE ANIMALS OR PETS. THEN WE HAVE THE NEWS LINE FOR ANYBODY VISUALLY IMPAIRED OR PRINT DISABLED. FOR SOMEONE WHO MAY BE DEAF OR HEARD OF HEARING, NOAH HAS A NICE RESOURCE FOR WHAT IS A GOOD RADIO TO BUY FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE DEAF OR HARD OF HEARING AND HAVE SPECIFIC EXAMPLES AND WHAT YOU WOULD NEED TO CONSIDER. PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIABETES, AGAIN, DEPENDING ON THE SEVERITY OF THEIR DIABETES THERE’S SOME THINGS YOU NEED TO THINK ABOUT AND THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF CLINICAL ENDOCRINOLOGISTS PUT TOGETHER A NICE DISASTER PLAN FOR PEOPLE THAT YOU CAN PRINTOUT FOR THEM AS A PDF. THERE ARE SOME THINGS LIKE A BETTER FROM YOUR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS DETAILING MOST RECENT MEDICATION REGIMENT. THOSE ARE THOSE TYPES OF FORUMS YOU COULD GET THEM TO FILL OUT. LOOKING AT YOUR INSULIN NEEDS WHETHER YOU’RE DOING ORALLY OR TAKING IT BY SYRINGE. THINKING ABOUT THE TESTING SUPPLIES THAT YOU’LL NEED. WHAT ABOUT A COOLER FOR YOUR INSULIN AND HOW LONG IT NEEDS TO BE REFRIGERATED AND HOW LONG THE COOLER CAN HOLD THAT AND HOW LONG DO YOU NEED HOW LONG CAN THAT BE KEPT IN THAT TYPE OF DEVICE OR COOLER. ALSO GIVING YOU IDEAS ABOUT WHAT ARE SOME OF THE SUPPLIES YOU NEED. YOUR BANDAGES AND TOPICAL MEDICATIONS. THINGS LIKE THAT BECAUSE WE KNOW PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIABETES COULD BE VERY SUSCEPTIBLE IF THEY GET A CUT. WE HAVE A TIP SHEET FROM THE AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION AND WE HAVE DIABETES FROM THE DIABETES SELF-MANAGEMENT JOURNAL AND THERE WAS A NICE ARTICLE ABOUT COLLECTING AND STORING SUPPLIES AND WHAT I HAD JUST SHOWN YOU AND THE LINK TO WHETHER THE DISASTER PLAN WHICH HAS A CHECKLIST FROM THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF CLINICAL ENDOCRINOLOGISTS. AND ONE SOURCE IS THE F.D.A. THEY HAVE A PAGE ON DRUGS AND HAVE AN EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PAGE AND HAVE TOPICS ABOUT SAFE DRUG USE AFTER A NATURAL HEALTH DISASTER. HOW LONG ARE YOUR MEDICATIONS GOOD FOR IN THE HEAT LIKE THE FIRES WE HAD OUT WEST OR WHAT ABOUT UNSAFE WATER. AGAIN, ON THE OTHER SIDE YOU CAN SEE OTHER THINGS ABOUT INFORMATION ON INSULIN STORAGE. I JUST BROUGHT UP THIS PAGE AGAIN TO SHOW YOU HOW YOU WOULD FIND IT. SOMETIMES LOCATING INFORMATION FROM THE F.D.A. IS TRICKIER. WHAT YOU’D NEED TO GO IS GO TO THEIR HOME PAGE AND UNDER DRUGS IS THE EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS AND A HALF DISASTER PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE AND FROM THERE FIND SPECIFIC TOPICS. OTHER THINGS YOU’LL FIND ON THAT FDA WEBSITE IS VIDEO AND MEDICATIONS AND HOW TO KEEP THEM SAFE. IF HAVE YOU SOMEONE WHO HAS A PROBLEM READING THAT INFORMATION, THERE’S A VIDEO THAT YOU CAN USE FOR THEM. AND AGAIN THERE’S SAFE DRUG STORAGE REGARDING INSULIN. TALKING ABOUT YOUR ONLINE PHARMACY AND SOME QUICK TIPS FOR BUYING MEDICATIONS OVER THE INTERNET IN CASE YOU CAN’T GET TO YOUR NORMAL PHARMACY AND ANOTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION FOR CONSUMERS IN GENERAL. THIS WAS A BOOKLET THAT WAS PRODUCED BY THE F.D.A. IT’S NO LONGER AVAILABLE IN PRINT BUT THE PDF IS STILL AVAILABLE. IT’S NICE BECAUSE OF THE WAY INSIDE THE PDF AND THE FORMS THEY HAVE AND THE QUESTIONS THEY ASK SO THAT IF HAVE YOU A MEDICAL DEVICE YOU CAN PUT THAT TYPE OF INFORMATION IN THERE AND THINGS I NEVER THOUGHT OF. THINGS YOU’LL NEED TO CONSIDER IF YOU HAVE THIS DEVICE. SO I WOULD SAY THIS IS WORTH EXPLORING LOOKING AT THE PDF AND REPRODUCING IT FOR YOUR DIFFERENT POPULATIONS. AGAIN, ANOTHER RESOURCE PAGE. JUST SOME THINGS THAT I THOUGHT MAY BE HARDER TO FIND OR THINGS YOU HADN’T THOUGHT ABOUT. THIS OXYGEN USE VACCINE PLANNING GUIDE HAS NICE PAGES AND PDFs AND FORMS FOR PEOPLE IN NEED OF OXYGEN ON A CONTINUOUS BASIS. C.D.C. HAS TOOL KITS AND FEMA HAS VIDEOS. AND THEN INTERESTING TOO IS LOOKING AT THIS DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL RIGHTS UNDER THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION AND WHAT NEEDS TO BE PROVIDED DURING A DISASTER. SO THIS IS A SITE PRODUCED BY THE AMERICAN RED CROSS CALLED SAFE AND WELL ALLOWING PEOPLE INSIDE DISASTER AREAS TO POST MESSAGES TO LOVED ONES. YOU CAN REGISTER YOURSELF SAFE AND WELL OR REGISTER FOR LOVED ONES YOU’RE LOOKING FOR. THIS IS WHAT THE PAGE WOULD LOOK LIKE. EASY TO DO. LIST YOURSELF AS SAFE AND WELL AND THIS IS THE WAY TO SEARCH. AND THEN SOME FAQs IF YOU NEED ADDITIONAL HELP. READY.gov HAS A NICE EMERGENCY SUPPLY LIST. SOMEONE ASKED EARLIER WHAT ARE EMERGENCY SUPPLIES DEFINED AS AND HERE THEY ARE. THERE’S THE EMERGENCY SUPPLY LIST I WOULD — I KNOW RIGHT NOW DURING THE SHUTDOWN YOU CAN’T BUT CHECK BACK LATER BUT THIS IS A PDF AND THIS IS A NICE INFOGRAPHIC THEY HAVE EXPLAINING WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE. PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY. AGAIN, I POINT THIS OUT THIS IS FROM THE OFFICE OF THE ASSISTANT SECRETARY FOR PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE. THE INFORMATION IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT TOO AND PRESENTED IN A DIFFERENT WAY THAN SOME OF THE OTHER RESOURCES THAT I’VE MENTIONED. THERE’S SOME NICE REALLY YOUTUBE VIDEOS HERE ABOUT DIALYSIS AND CHARGING YOUR PHONE AND THINGS LIKE THAT. PREPARING FOR THE STORM AND PEOPLE WHO ARE HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS OR IF YOU WANT TO MONITOR A SITUATION, THIS HAS UP TO DATE INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON. I WOULD SAY THIS WORTH A LOOK AT TOO. HERE ARE SOME APPS WE CALL THE DIGITAL GO BAG YOU MAY WANT TO DOWNLOAD. SOME APPS ARE STAND ALONE MEANING YOU DON’T NEED INTERNET LIKE THE WISER AND SOME YOU STILL NEED INTERNET ACCESS. AND WE HAVE A NICE PROMOTIONAL PDF OF THAT. NOW I’M GOING TALK ABOUT THE ROLE OF SOCIAL MEDIA. JUST A QUICK OVERVIEW OF THAT BECAUSE WE KNOW NOW THAT SOCIAL MEDIA PLAYS A BIG PART AND ROLE IN SUPPLYING INFORMATION DURING DISASTERS. YOU CAN SEE FROM THIS QUOTE THAT CLEARLY SOCIAL MEDIA ARE CHANGING THE WAY PEOPLE COMMUNICATE NOT ONLY IN THEIR DAY TO DAY LIVES BUT ALSO DISASTERS THAT THREATEN PUBLIC HEALTH. AND STAY INFORMED USING SOCIAL MEDIA AND OTHER THINGS ARE USING APPS, E-MAIL LISTS, RSS FEEDS, TWITTER, AND WIDGETS. I GAVE YOU SOME LINKS TO THE E-MAIL LIST AND C.D.C. HAS E-MAIL LIST SERVE FOR PREPAREDNESS AND DIMRC THE DISASTER INFORMATION MANAGEMENT RESEARCH CENTER ALSO HAS A REALLY NICE LIST SERVE. THEY PUBLISH ONCE A WEEK AND ALSO DURING DISASTERS THEY’LL PROMOTE INFORMATION THAT THEY HAVE. THEY’LL PUSH OUT THE INFORMATION. THEY ALSO HAVE A REALLY NICE WEBINAR THAT THEY DO ONCE A MONTH ON DIFFERENT TOPICS. SO I WOULD SAY I REALLY THINK THIS IS WORTH IF IT’S SOMETHING YOU’RE INTERESTING IN, I WOULD SAY THIS IS WORTHWHILE. AND THEN THIS PRO MED. SO PRO MED IS THE ISID THE NATIONAL SOCIETY FOR INFECTIOUS DISEASES AN THE PRO MED IS THE ACRONYM FOR PROGRAM FOR MONITORING EMERGING DISEASES AND IT’S ALSO A SURVEILLANCE TOOL SO IF THERE WAS SOMETHING GOING ON WITH EBOLA. EBOLA IS BECOMING AN ISSUE AGAIN IN AFRICA. THIS WOULD BE A REALLY GOOD PLACE TO STAY ON TOP OF THAT INFORMATION AND WHEN ZIKA WAS A PROBLEM TOO, THIS WOULD BE A REAL GOOD PLACE WHERE YOU’D FIND UP TO DATE INFORMATION ABOUT THAT. R.S.S. FEEDS, C.D.C. HAS ONE, FEMA AND THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION. SO YOU CAN SEE THERE’S MANY WAYS TO KEEP INFORMED AND UP TO DATE AND UP TO THE MINUTE. THEN WE HAVE TWITTER MOST OF US KNOW WHAT TWITTER IS. HERE’S SOME OF THE HASH TAGS AN DIFFERENT ORGANIZATION AND AGENCIES WITHIN THE GOVERNMENT AND THEIR TWITTER FEEDS. AND WE HAVE SOMETHING ALSO CALLED A WIDGET THAT YOU COULD PUT ON YOUR WEBSITE THAT YOU CAN HELP INFORM PEOPLE ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON AND HOW THEY CAN GET INFORMATION SO DURING FLU SEASON YOU MAY PUT ON THE WIDGET FLU.gov. AND MOST OF THESE PLACES TOO TELL YOU EXACTLY HOW YOU CAN DO THIS AND WHAT YOU NEED TO DO AND WHAT INFORMATION YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD AND HOW IT CAN BE DOWNLOADED. HAS TO ARE LINKS TO THE C.D.C. AND THE OTHER FROM FEMA. I’M NEARING THE END OF MY PRESENTATION NOW BUT I WANT TO TAKE A MINUTE TO TALK ABOUT THE READABILITY OF DISASTER AND PREPAREDNESS VIDEOS. IN THE EARLY YEARS WE WERE JUST WORRIED ABOUT GETTING INFORMATION OUT THERE TO THE PUBLIC AND WE WEREN’T CONSIDERING THE AUDIENCES. SO NOW WE’RE REALLY CONSIDERING THE AUDIENCES AND WHO WE’RE TALKING TO AND WHO WE’RE PUSHING THIS INFORMATION OUT TO AND MAKING SURE IT’S IN A FORMAT THAT’S EASY TO READ IN OTHER LANGUAGES SO THAT PEOPLE WE PUSH OUT ALL THIS INFORMATION BUT WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY CAN READ IT. AND IN PARTICULAR, THIS WAS AN ARTICLE THAT WAS PUBLISHED ON THE READABILITY OF DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING AND THE ASSESSMENTS OF SOME OF THOSE MATERIALS. THERE’S A BLOG THAT I SUBSCRIBE TOO I RECOMMEND CALLED WE LOVE HEALTH LITERATURE. ANY OF YOU INVOLVED FOR PRODUCING MATERIALS IN YOUR ORGANIZATION OR FOR YOUR LIBRARIES OR ARE CONSULTED IN THAT AREA, YOUR ORGANIZATION MAY SAY I NEED SOMETHING ON X, Y OR Z. THIS IS A REALLY GOOD BLOG AND THEY ALWAYS HAVE GREAT TIPS FOR ALL KINDS OF INFORMATION AND WHAT YOU SHOULD AND SHOULDN’T DO. AND THEY’RE ALWAYS VERY SIMPLE AND TO THE POINT. IN PARTICULAR, THEY DID ONE ON COMMUNICATES AND EMERGENCIES. THERE’S JUST FIVE BASIC THINGS TO THINK ABOUT AND I LIKE THE WAY THEY ALWAYS END THEIR BLOG WITH THE BOTTOM LINE. SO THEY SUMMARIZE THEIR BLOGS. AND IF YOU WERE PUTTING ON A PROGRAM AND YOU WANTED TO KNOW IF YOUR PARTICIPANTS WERE UNDERSTANDING THE INFORMATION THAT YOU HAD JUST DELIVERED, THE APAH, THE AMERICAN PUBLIC HEALTH ASSOCIATION HAS A GREAT QUIZ. AND SO IT ALSO HAS THESE FACT SHEETS. IT CAN HELP YOU IN YOUR PROGRAMMING AND YOUR DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR PROGRAMS. AND LASTLY, I WANTED TO TALK ABOUT THE MEDICAL LIBRARY ASSOCIATION ALONG WITH THE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE AND THE NATIONAL NETWORKS OF LIBRARY OF MEDICINE HAS A PARTICULAR SPECIALIZATION THAT YOU CAN GET. AND IT’S CALLED THE MLA DISASTER INFORMATION SPECIALIZATION. IT TRAINS PROFESSIONALS TO ACCESS, USE AND MANAGE INFORMATION TO SUPPORT THEIR INSTITUTIONS AND COMMUNITIES IN PLANNING FOR RESPONDING TO AND RECOVERING FROM EMERGENCIES AND DISASTERS. SO IF YOU WERE LOOKING FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OR MAYBE A WAY TO BE ABLE TO BE PART OF YOUR COMMITTEE THAT DEALS WITH DISASTER HEALTH INFORMATION AND DISASTER PREPAREDNESS IN YOUR ORGANIZATION, I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU TAKE THESE CLASSES, THEY’RE ALL ONLINE FOR THE BASIC. IT’S ALL ONLINE AND IT’S FREE TO YOU. IT MAY BE WAY TO PROVE TO YOUR ORGANIZATION THE SKILLS YOU HAVE AND HOW YOU CAN BE AN ASSET TO THAT ORGANIZATION AND THEIR COMMITTEES. AND AGAIN, IT’S NOT JUST FOR LIBRARIANS. WE HAVE A LIST OF OTHER PEOPLE THAT MAY BE INTERESTED AND YOU MAY WANT TO PUSH OUT THIS INFORMATION TO THEM. SO I WOULD REALLY RECOMMEND AND I WENT THROUGH A LOT OF INFORMATION AND A LOT OF RESOURCES. I WOULD REALLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU EX PLAYER SOME OF THESE THAT YOU’RE INTERESTED IN AND THINK ABOUT THE INFORMATION THAT I PRESENTED TODAY AND HOW YOU CAN USE THAT INFORMATION TO DEVELOP PROGRAMS. MAYBE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY IF YOU’RE A VOLUNTEER FOR THE GIRL SCOUTS, BOY SCOUTS, VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA, THIS MAY BE A GOOD WAY TO DEVELOP A PROGRAM. WE HAVE A LOT OF RESOURCES I PRESENTED TODAY. A LOT OF THINGS TO THINK ABOUT BUT THIS MIGHT BE A GOOD START TO DEVELOP YOUR PROGRAM. THE DISASTER HERO, I WANTED TO TELL YOU THE NATIONAL LIBRARIES OF MEDICINE THE MIDDLE ATLANTIC REGION WE FUNDED THE LIBRARY TO DO A PROGRAM ON DISASTER HERO AND IT WAS A GAMING EVENT IN ONE OF THE PUBLIC LIBRARIES ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON FOR CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS AND THE PROGRAM WAS ABOUT DISASTER. DISASTER HEALTH INFORMATION AND WHAT YOU DO AND THEN THEY HAD THIS GAME THAT THE KIDS COULD PARTICIPATE IN AND THEY HAD LITTLE PRIZES FOR WHATEVER HERO THEY BECAME. THERE’S MANY WAYS TO USE THIS INFORMATION. IF YOU NEED ANY HELP WITH THAT, LET ME KNOW OR IF THERE’S A PARTICULAR LIKE DISASTER LIT, IF YOU WANTED A PRESENTATION ABOUT THAT OR WEBINAR AND YOU WANTED TO GO INTO IT IN MORE DETAIL FOR A GROUP YOU HAVE, I CAN DO THAT FOR YOU. SO WE COULD TAILOR AND TAKE A PARTICULAR AUDIENCE AND TAKE THE INFORMATION AND RESOURCES AND DO A PRESENTATION FOR YOU JUST ON THAT PARTICULAR INFORMATION. BECAUSE AS I SAID, THERE’S A LOT HERE TO CONSIDER. AGAIN, WE’RE JUST RAISING AWARENESS AND HELPING YOU THINK ABOUT SOME OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT MAY HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS FOR INFORMATION WHEN A DISASTER EMERGENCY STRIKES. SO NOW WHAT I’D LIKE TO DO IS OPEN IT UP FOR QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS. AND I THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING TODAY. THE PRESENTATION AND AUDIO VERSION WILL BE AVAILABLE ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL IN A COUPLE WEEKS. THE SLIDES ARE ALSO ALREADY ON THE CLASS INFORMATION PAGE ON THE NNLM WEBSITE. I HAVE THE SLIDES ALREADY LOADED FOR YOU THERE THE POWER POINT SLIDES. SO IF THERE’S ANY OTHER INFORMATION OR NEEDS YOU HAVE. LET ME KNOW. I’M MICHELLE BURDA THE INFORMATION HEALTH LITERACY COORDINATOR FOR NNLMR. OH, AND ONE OTHER THING I FORGOT TO ADD THE SLIDE IS FOR FUNDING. SO OUR FUNDING WE’LL OPEN UP FOR NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY, DELAWARE AND PENNSYLVANIA FEBRUARY 8. SO IF ANY OF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT HEALTH INFORMATION AWARENESS PROGRAM SPONSORING A HEALTH AWARENESS INFORMATION DAY ON DISASTER HEALTH INFORMATION AT YOUR ORGANIZATION OR ASSOCIATION OR LIBRARY, THIS WOULD BE A GOOD WAY TO HELP YOU GET THE FUNDS IN ORDER TO DO THAT. WHEN I END THE PROGRAM, A SURVEY WILL COME UP IN OUR MLA EVALUATION SURVEY AND YOU’LL NEED TO COMPLETE THAT AND AT THE END YOU’LL GET THE MLA CE CODE. TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT FUNDING GO TO THE WEB PAGE UNDER THE TAB FOR FUNDING, IT WILL HAVE THAT THERE ALL THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PROGRAMS THAT WE’RE FUNDING AND RELEASE A PREVIEW ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE NEXT DAY OR SO. AND IT’S HANNAH WHO IS OUR WEB PERSON SAID THERE’LL BE A LINK TO OUR FUNDING PREVIEW ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS. BUT SOME OF THE THINGS WE HAVE, WE ALSO HAVE A PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AWARD, HEALTH INFORMATION AWARD AND OUTREACH AND HEALTH SCIENCES LIBRARY AWARD AND SYMPOSIUM AWARDS. THOSE ARE ONES I CAN THINK OF OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD. WE’LL ALSO BE SPONSORING WEBINARS FOR FUNDING ON HOW TO GET FUNDING AND HOW TO PROCESS YOUR APPLICATION AND WHAT ARE THE THINGS YOU NEED TO DO YOUR APPLICATION. SOME TIPS AND TRICKS AND SOME IMPORTANT THINGS YOU NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN YOU’RE ASKING FOR FUNDING. OKAY. I THINK THAT’S ALL I HAVE. IF ANYBODY ELSE HAS ANY QUESTIONS, I DON’T THINK THERE’S BEEN ANYTHING ELSE HERE. HANNAH, WHO’S BEEN HELPING ME OUT TODAY BEHIND THE SCENES HAS PUT THE LINKS IN. YOU HAVE PERMISSION TO USE MY RESOURCE SLIDES. MOST HAVE AN ATTRIBUTION OF WHERE I GOT THE INFORMATION FROM. IF YOU’RE GOING USE THE PRESENTATION IN ITSELF, JUST GIVE US A SHUT OUT AN ATTRIBUTION TO WHERE THE INFORMATION CAME FROM. AND SOMEONE COMMENTED THANK YOU FOR SHARING THE MLA DISASTER INFORMATION AND SHE’S A GIRL SCOUT LEADER SO SHE’LL SHARE THIS WITH THE LEADERS IN HER SERVICE UNIT AND COUNTY. I DO THINK THERE’S A LOT OF INFORMATION THERE THAT WOULD MAKE A GOOD — I DON’T KNOW IF THERE’S A BADGE FOR DISASTER EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS. I THINK I WAS READING SOMETHING THERE’S SOMETHING SIMILAR TO THAT. SO YOU CAN INCORPORATE THIS INFORMATION MAYBE INTO THAT BADGE. HANNAH SHARED THE LINKS TO THE SLIDES. THE PREVIEW ISN’T QUITE READY YET. CHECK ON OUR SITE NNLM.gov MAR IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS OR SO OR BY MONDAY. GIRLS CAN CARRY THEIR OWN BADGES. I DIDN’T KNOW THAT. I WAS A GIRL SCOUT SO MANY YEARS AGO. I’M GLAD TO HEAR THAT. THAT’S INTERESTING. AGAIN, FOLKS, THANK YOU ALL FOR PARTICIPATING AND I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU AND ANYTHING YOU NEED FOR CLARIFICATION OR THINKING ABOUT PARTICULAR WEBINARS FOR A GROUP THAT YOU HAVE, PLEASE CONTACT ME. OKAY. THANKS. THANKS FOR WATCHING. THIS VIDEO WAS PRODUCED BY THE NATIONAL NETWORK OF LIBRARIES OF MEDICINE. SELECT THE CIRCULAR CHANNEL ICON TO SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL.
