The Healthy People Library Project is a five-year project to bring to the nation's 16,000 public libraries the latest information about biomedical research. The project is designed to provide minority groups and other consumers easy access to current, reliable information on
selected health topics at their local libraries.

The goal of our project is to empower libraries to play an active role in increasing the quality and years of healthy life and eliminating health disparities for all Americans, especially African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, and Native Americans. As consumer demands for health information skyrocket, public, medical, and consumer health libraries will be flooded with requests for health information resources. AAAS is pleased to join the community of libraries and other organizations that are responding to this need.
