Check Out our "Be Healthy…Read Healthy" Project!

The University of South Carolina School of Medicine Library has received funds from the South Carolina Legislature for the Be Healthy…Read Healthy project, which aims to increase access to health information for underserved individuals in rural and urban communities throughout South Carolina. Access to quality consumer health information empowers patients and their families by increasing knowledge and improving decision-making. As part of this project, the School of Medicine Library selected consumer health and disability information resources, ten books and one DVD, to distribute to each county library system in the state.

Job well done! Thanks for helping deliver the books, Betty! Curtis, too!
(And thanks to my graduate student assistant, Emily Boney, for stamping all of the books! )

Thanks so much for getting the funding and getting these great titles for South Carolina's public libraries! The State Library is glad to help be your distribution point :-)
