The Healthy Libraries Program (HeLP) consists of students who are currently training in the fields of social work, public health, library science, and nursing. They are available at the library to provide blood pressure screenings, to answer questions and provide reliable, evidence based information on a wide variety of health topics such as heart disease, diabetes, understanding medications and much more. The team can also direct patrons to community resources, help fill out paperwork for social services, find housing, assist with finding a healthcare provider and scheduling appointments.
