23 Feb Making Health Care More Accessible
Now that internet access is available to almost everyone, many people turn to online resources for information and advice. But many more still prefer to get their information from books and turn to their local libraries for help. An innovate program at one Arizona library is taking this service to the next level. They have hired a full-time registered nurse to assist library patrons with their healthcare questions and issues. She spends her time at six different library locations throughout the city and helps people with everything from diabetes information to referrals in domestic abuse situations. As anyone who works in healthcare knows, care is never limited to just a doctor’s office or a managed care facility. It’s interesting to see new and creative options like this!
