Health Information –

Don’t leave it to chance!

MHSLA (Michigan Health Sciences Library Association) will hold its Annual Educational Conference at the newly remodeled Park Place Hotel in Traverse City on Thursday and Friday, October 11-12, 2018. We are planning an exciting lineup of continuing education courses, vendor exhibits, special events, and opportunities for our members to present papers, lightning rounds, and posters.

We are thrilled to announce our keynote speaker, Mary Ellen Bates. Ms. Bates is a nationally-recognized speaker who is always funny, smart, and engaging. Friday’s keynote talk, (ROI) Truth to Power: Measuring and Talking About What Matters, will focus on measuring and communicating why we do what we do, and the impact it has on our organization’s most important goals.

This year, continuing education courses will be included in the conference registration fees – no extra charge! Thursday morning, Doctor Speak for Medical Librarians (4-hour CE) will be offered concurrently with two 2-hour courses: Introduction to Data Visualization with Tableau Public and Protecting Human Subjects Data in Health Sciences Research. Thursday afternoon, Ms. Bates will present her very popular Super Searcher Strategies course. We guarantee you’ll leave the conference with some practical tips that you can use right away!

Driving in Wednesday night? Stop up for an informal gathering at the “Top of the Park” to meet with friends and colleagues. And on Thursday night, we’ll gather at the historic City Opera House to mingle and meet local author, Mardi Link. Ms. Link received rave reviews for her true crime books and memoir. She’ll be on hand after her presentation to sign books.

See you in beautiful Traverse City in October!
