April 18 at 12 p.m. CST: Weary of helping: Public libraries, Health Information, and the Affordable Care Act
Catherine Arnott Smith, PhD, Associate Professor, UW-Madison iSchool

Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden, PhD, has stated that “Health information is just about the number one thing that people go into public libraries and connect to public libraries for.” [PBS Newshour, September 19, 2016]. What was the impact of the Affordable Care Act on public libraries? What successes and challenges did library workers face in helping citizens enroll?  In this webinar, Professor Smith will discuss results of a survey she conducted, supported by the National Library of Medicine, to investigate how public library workers in 20 states experienced the ACA rollouts in their libraries, as well as the health information resources they rely on most often.  She will also provide helpful resources to inform public librarians about the rapidly changing health insurance and coverage landscape in 2017.
