"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.
