Augusta-Richmond Community Health Outreach Project
Augusta University Libraries and Augusta-Richmond County Public Library are partnering together to deliver free informational sessions on opioid use, domestic abuse, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. A specialist on each topic will hold a discussion. Following the presentation, a short demonstration on how to find reliable health information will be given by Augusta University librarians, Steph Hendren and Tracey Busbee.
“Public health problems like Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes impact our lives and the lives of our families, friends, and neighbors every day. At the Augusta-Richmond County Public Library System, we know that education is the first step to creating positive change in the health and well-being of both individual lives and in the community. We are excited to partner with the Augusta University Libraries to offer our patrons accessible health information from expert presenters about these epidemics and their impact on the CSRA,” says Mashell Fashion, Director, Augusta Richmond County Public Library.
Michele Reed, Title IX Coordinator, Office of Compliance & Enterprise Risk Management, Augusta University, will be speaking about Domestic Abuse on October 17, 2018 at 6:00 p.m.
The Augusta-Richmond Community Health Outreach Project sessions will be hosted at the Augusta-Richmond County Public Library at 823 Telfair Street, Augusta, GA 30901 in Meeting Room A on the first floor.
