Brain health is increasingly in the news as more is learned about the connections between mind and body, and healthy aging. Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. But there’s hope in recent research showing that brain training, and more specifically speed training, can cut dementia risk by 48%. WiLS is excited to offer BrainHQ™, a way for public libraries to help their communities address this growing concern.
One of our greatest joys at WiLS is hearing our members tell the stories of the big and important work they are doing – interesting new projects or initiatives, or even interesting and new approaches to old projects. And, in addition to hearing about it, it makes us even happier when we can share those stories with other members. Each month, WiLS is proud to feature an interview with one of our library members. This month, we interview Michele Matucheski, MLS, AHIP, Librarian & Information Consultant, Clark Family Health Science Library at Mercy Medical Center in Oshkosh.
At WiLS, we want to bring valuable information to our library partners, including information about the missions and big ideas of the vendors they may already do business with. Each month, WiLS interviews a vendor partner in order to bridge the gap and open the door to valuable collaborations. This month, we share insights from David Brooks, District Manager of Gale / Cengage Learning.
We are pleased to offer trials of K12 resources from Gale until March 2017. Please see http://galesupport.com/trial/wisconsin to access the databases.
