Libraries and museums help individuals find the health information they needs and offer a range of learning experiences to support healthy lifestyles.
In order to assure that librarians have the information and connections with local experts needed to connect their patrons to information about the Health Insurance Marketplace, IMLS and the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare will work cooperatively to make sure that libraries are aware of and able to connect patrons with information resources and community partners.
