Melissa Wright, MLIS, PhD, reference and instructional services librarian at Rowland Medical Library, received a grant to attend in a course in agricultural medicine (Agricultural Medicine: Occupational and Environmental Health for Rural Health Professionals) offered by the North Carolina Agromedicine Institute. The course addressed multiple areas of rural medicine such as pesticide exposure, farm injuries, and farm equipment safety and met face-to-face twice in Greenville, North Carolina, with additional class sessions held online. The grant was funded through a training award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Southeastern/Atlantic Region and was available to four librarians who serve agricultural populations in one of the southeastern states. Recipients of the grant will share information on agricultural health resources with their institutions and communities.



MLA's mission is to provide professional leadership for the development, promotion, and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all.
