The Gerrish-True Health Sciences Library at Central Maine Medical Center’s Just Ask! DVD was selected as a finalist for the health education category of the FREDDIE award. You can learn more about the FREDDIE award here.

Just Ask! helps persons new to the Lewiston, Auburn community of Maine learn how to navigate the local health care system and take charge of their own health. The DVD offers menu choices of Somali, Maay Maay or English soundtracks. The FREDDIE award, also known as the International Health and Medical Media Award, recognizes excellence in health media production. This is the 35th year of the award.

The Just Ask! DVD is a funded project of the NN/LM – New England Region and the CMMC Family Medicine Residency Program. The NN/LM – New England Region is very proud of the outstanding work by the CMMC library in creating and promoting the Just Ask! DVD.

Congratulations to Kathy Brunjes and Maureen Fournier, librarians at CMMC Gerrish-True Health Sciences Library!
