The NN/LM New England Region is sponsoring a program on issues related to health equity and health information access on March 29 at the Shrewsbury, MA campus of UMass Medical School. Per their website, “There is much to learn in the area where equity and access issues intersect with health and technology. We’ll hear from three speakers plus reactions and comments from people in our region whose information interventions have been directed at our most vulnerable or underserved populations.”

Speakers for the day will be:

  • Janine Anzalota, Program Director at the Boston Public Health Commission
  • Jessamyn West, author, community technology librarian and community manager of the massive group blog MetaFilter.com
  • Gary L. Kreps, University Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Department of Communication at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA

The program is free, but seating is limited and registration IS required. For more information and to register, visit the NER’s website.
