Libraries at the School of Medicine have teamed up with the New Haven Free Public Library to offer health information to the public. Located at the main public library on Elm Street and three branches throughout New Haven, the Consumer Health Information Center (CHIC) will provide workstations with computers, consumer health books and access to health resources on the Web. The partners in the CHIC are the public library, the School of Medicine, the Harvey Cushing/John Hay Whitney Medical Library and the Epidemiology and Public Health Library. A $43,885 grant from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine will fund the program for 18 months.
