Specialist in Consumer Health Information

I received an exciting piece of mail last week. My certificate for the Consumer Health Information Specialization has arrived! I’ll be adding that to my resume. 🙂

The goals of the CHIS program are to

  • improve health information services for consumers,
  • create partners in the delivery of consumer health information, and
  • increase access to consumer health information courses.

Participants include medical librarians, public librarians, and allied health professionals. For more information, visit the MLA website. In order to receive the Level II specialization, I had to earn 24 credits. I completed most of my courses online through the Southeastern/Atlantic Region of the National Networks of Library of Medicine. Check out their schedule of upcoming courses here! You can also take in-person and online classes from other Regional Medical Libraries, or at MLA conferences and chapter meetings.
