This monthly 1 hour series will focus on topics of interest to clinicians, researchers, faculty, and information professionals.

This month, Jessica Schwind, Epidemiologist, Public Health Program Evaluator, and Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at Georgia Southern University, will present Capacity Building in Public Health Through Strategic Interdisciplinary Partnerships at 10AM CT on Wednesday, September 13th. Details on joining the meeting are available at the event link below. No registration is required, and the session is free to any interested parties.

The primary goals of public health are to prevent disease and injury, as well as promote healthy behaviors. Public health is not focused on the individual, but rather aims to improve the overall health in populations. As a result, people from many different walks of life are impacted by public health policy and practice. This presentation will briefly explain the core functions of the field, as well as examine potential areas for alliance across multiple disciplines. In particular, the role of the health sciences librarian will be highlighted and examples of past collaborations between the public health and library workforce will be discussed.
