SBM Healthy Libraries Program

The Stony Brook Medicine Healthy Libraries Program (SBMHeLP) is a partnership between the Public Libraries of Suffolk County, a unique group of healthcare professionals and graduate student interns from the fields of social work, public health, nursing, nutrition and library science, working together to provide access to virtual healthcare related resources for public library patrons throughout Suffolk County. This partnership looks to enhance the health and well-being of Suffolk County residents through library programming, collection development and dissemination of information on current health topics impacting our communities. The program is supported in part by the American Heart Association of Long Island.
