Memphis Public Libraries, through Memphis Library Foundation, was chosen as a national partner for the All of Us Research Program, an initiative of the National Institute of Health (NIH). NIH, along with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM), has identified select public libraries across the country to help raise awareness for the All of Us initiative.
While the All of Us initiative aims to enroll 1 million people in the program, the role of the Memphis Public Libraries will be to provide information, resources, and support to customers interested in enrolling in the program. In 2006, the Memphis Public Libraries’ Healthcare Information Center was recognized as the Best Health Information Center in Tennessee and a finalist in Best Health Information Center in the United States.
