The Pacific College of Oriental College (PCOM) received an NNLM PSR Express Outreach Award in 2016 to conduct a collaborative health information program in San Diego to increase community awareness and promote access to NLM/NIH online resources in a series of training workshops and outreach conference exhibits. Working collaboratively with eight partnering organizations, who hosted the training sessions, we reached a broad base of culturally and ethnically diverse consumers and health professionals. Our collaborating organizations included libraries affiliated with San Diego county, the cities of San Diego and Chula Vista; community centers of La Jolla, Pacific Beach and the San Diego LGBT; faith based organizations of Christ Lutheran, United Methodist and Prince Chapel AME; and the PCOM campus and affiliated clinics. The conference exhibits included the 2016 San Diego Successful Aging Expo and Pacific Symposium where we reached large audiences, which included healthcare professionals.
