"Color My World Healthy" is the theme of a
new outreach program offered by the Medical Library at East
Tennessee State University's James H. Quillen College of
Medicine. This project, which is partially supported with
federal funds, is responsible for the establishment of the health
library at the Carver Recreation Center in Johnson City,
Tennessee. The library includes books, brochures, DVDs, and
computers which provide easy access to consumer health
information for minorities. Instructors from the Medical
Library teach classes about how to find reliable healthcare
information using the Internet. The "Color My World
Healthy" partnership is designed to help bridge the health
disparities gap in our community.
This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. N01-LM-6-3502 with the University of Maryland Baltimore.
