Partners in Public Health: Healthy People 2030 and the Role of Public Libraries in Promoting Health and Health Equity

This two-part webinar series was co-sponsored by ODP, the Network of the National Library of Medicine, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, and National Center for Health Statistics.

In addition to highlighting a health literacy researcher and several public libraries, each webinar provides an overview of Healthy People 2030 and a demonstration of Healthy People data resources.

By the end of the series, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss how Healthy People 2030 objectives are used to establish benchmarks and monitor progress in improving the health of all Americans
  • Identify how Healthy People data resources can be used by libraries for health promotion (especially in underserved communities)
  • Explain how libraries impact health outcomes in their communities and how this work aligns with the mission of Healthy People 2030
