From the GMR: Free Webinar for September: Critical Roles for Librarians in the National Health IT Agenda

Network Members,

Please join us on Thursday, September 15, 2011 at 1pm Central time (12pm Mountain, 2 pm Eastern) as Charles Friedman, Professor and Director of the Health Informatics Program in the Schools of Information and Public Health at the University of Michigan presents Critical Roles for Librarians in the National Health IT Agenda.

As any librarian will tell you, technology is a means and not an end in itself. Health care will become safer and more effective only through rigorous and systematic application of up-to-date knowledge. Our presenter, Charles Friedman, will describe the National Health IT Agenda, the key role knowledge plays in its success, and how librarians can help ensure that knowledge supports improved practice through technology.
