If you are interested in applying for this funding opportunity, consider partnering with the OHSU Library.  Our librarian faculty members have experience working with consumers and providers to extend health information resources into clinical and community settings.  We are willing to partner on any topic and are especially interested in applications responsive to the National Library of Medicine interest areas.  Contact Dolores Judkins (503-494-3478, judkinsd@ohsu.edu) or Chris Shaffer (503-367-4693, shafferc@ohsu.edu) for further information.
