Huntsville - Madison County Public Library's “Help Yourself to Health” Initiative

Did you know that people ask more questions about their cell phone plan then they ask their doctor? That’s about to change with Huntsville Madison County Library’s Help Yourself to Health initiative.  This program provides access to valuable health information for the community.  

“Health literacy plays a pivotal role in the lives and well being of our community. It’s important that the Library is there to provide the information.” said Laurel Best, Executive Director of Huntsville Madison County Public Library.

Help Yourself to Health is a year-long project that features special events, educational forums, community outreach programs and access to Medline Plus Health Library, a non commercial information source.  All events and forums are free to the public.

“We want to empower people with health knowledge.” Rosalind Lett, Associate Director of Public Services at the Huntsville Madison County Public Library, commented on the initiative. “So when people talk to their healthcare professionals they can ask the right questions.”

The Help Yourself to Health Initiative has been made possible by a grant from National Library of Medicine.
