#HealthLiteracyMonth #citeNLM Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
October is Health Literacy Month, a perfect time to learn about health literacy, the set of skills we use to find, understand, and use information to make decisions about our health. The Biomedical Library invites you to participate in the National Library of Medicine's #citeNLM Wikipedia Edit-a-thon to edit child and maternal health-related pages on Wikipedia, an open-source online encyclopedia that has become one of the world's most popular websites. No prior experience with Wikipedia is necessary for this volunteer activity. There are two ways to participate:
- Option #1: This is asychronous virtual volunteer activity that you can do on a computer with Internet access. Set aside some time on Thursday October 29th (or any day of your choice). Follow the instructions available here.
- Option #2: Join the National Library of Medicine's virtual live Edit-a-thon on Thursday October 29th from 1pm to 3pm Eastern Time. Register here for the live editing session.
