Our continuing education courses are filling up! Register now and gain MLA CE credits while you widen your lens in Rockport!

Concepts in Genetics -Susan McClatchy, MS

Continuing our series of clinical classes, this will cover basic concepts in genetics. The material presented will coordinate with the afternoon class, Introduction to Genetics Databases.

Health Literacy in Practice: Writing and Instructing in Plain Language – Nancy Goodwin and Margo Coletti

Participants will identify the problem of low health literacy, its definition, and how it impacts patient outcomes. Using three broad principles of writing in plain language they will critique and rewrite poorly worded sentences and brainstorm in small groups how to rewrite a sample handout.

Introduction to Genetics Databases – David Osterbur, Ph.D.

This class will complement material learned in the morning class, Concepts in Genetics, by teaching participants about basic genetics databases and how to search them.

Deciphering Clinical Statistics – James McLellan, Ph.D.

Not so confident about confidence intervals? Not sure what a p value is? Want to know how researchers calculate power? Come learn about these and other statistical topics. Strong math skills not required.

All courses will take place on October 19th and  have been approved for 4 hours of MLA CE credit. For more information see:  http://nahsl.libguides.com/nahsl2014/continuing_education

Early bird registration ends September 29th!
