Grow your knowledge with Health Information IQ presentation

doctorKnowing what to trust and not trust from the vast amount of information on healthy living and medicine can be a difficult proposition. Norman Public Library West looks at that topic in its upcoming program Expanding Your Health Information IQ, at 10 a.m. Friday, June 10, at the library.

Librarians from the University of Oklahoma’s Robert M. Bird Health Sciences Library will lead a hands-on exploration of MedlinePlus, the National Library of Medicine’s comprehensive consumer health information resource.

The program is for teens ages 12 and up and adults, and space is limited, so registration is required.
