Hello everyone,

The Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM), has created a series of consumer health classes for anyone interested in consumer health information and outreach. CHIS On Demand is comprised of 5 separate classes which cover the critical, need-to-know content related to the 5 Level 1 CHIS competencies:

1)   Know the Community

2)   Know the Health Consumer

3)   Knowledge of Subject Matter and Resources

4)   Evaluation of Health Information

5)   Communication, Reference, and Instruction

The series of classes can be completed in any order. You can take 1 or all the classes. Each is designed to take 1 hour to complete.

We also want you to know that NNLM will also help you in obtaining CHIS (Consumer Health Information Specialization) by covering the application fee for level 1 or level 2. This includes those renewing their CHIS.

Register for CHIS On Demand

Learn more about the CHIS Specialization and how to apply for NNLM to cover the application fees on the NNLM Specialization page.
