LIFE INTERRUPTED Panel Discussion 10/24/2021

Welcome to the NNLM’s All of Us Community Engagement Center screening of LIFE INTERRUPTED in partnership with the National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN), National Black Nurses Association (NBNA) - New Orleans Chapter, and Southern University at New Orleans.

To watch the film live before this broadcast, head over to our Eventive page: https://watch.eventive.org/lifeinterr...

Join us here after the film for a panel discussion on health literacy in relation to breast cancer. The conversation will include a conversation on breast cancer awareness and prevention, inequities in the diagnosis and treatment of the disease among different communities, and personal experiences from the documentary’s director.

This event is in collaboration with the All of Us Research Program, which is inviting one million or more people across the U.S. to help build one of the most diverse health databases in history. Researchers will use this data to learn how our biology, lifestyle, and environment affect health to help personalize medicine in the future. Learn more about this historic program here: JoinAllofUs.org/Together.

The Network of the National Library of Medicine is funded by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Learn more at https://nnlm.gov

Today's "Book Heroes" challenge: Deep in the forest one evening, you come upon a crystal clear lake. A single ray of sunlight stabs through the clouds and falls upon a beautiful sword stuck into a tree stump on an island in the middle of the lake. If you can swim out to the island and remove the sword, it's yours.
You will need Vitality to make the swim, and Strength to free the sword. Good luck Heroes!

It's banned books week! Why is it important? It celebrates our freedom to read and highlights the value of free and open access to information without censorship. What does this mean for Stillwater County Library? It means that the collection is shaped by the entire population, not by the the person selecting or one group in the county. Every patron should see themselves reflected in the collection. If you would like to see a title in the library that you think others would also read, please recommend it. Celebrate your freedom to read by checking out one of the numerous previously challenged or banned books on display.
