November 2016 day & week health awareness events

Continued from previous month


A Pinterest Board has been made especially for November, with images for health awareness events that are on this month.  http://pinterest.com/bsheim/healthaware-november/

There is now a form you can use to add information you know of that I might have missed. Click “ADD EVENT” at the top of the page and follow the directions. Thank you!


Congratulations to my collaborators in Spain, they have received an award for their April Netvibes page on Safety and Occupational Health! http://www.netvibes.com/diadseguridadt#Portada

In other news, on Friday, May 4th, I will be presenting at the Intelligent Information Symposium in Sydney http://intelligentinfo.com.au/2012_programme.cfm, “How HAPIness Happened!” the story about how this project has developed from an idea to a reality and the international collaboration that has been such an integral part of it. The presentation is now viewable on Slideshare! http://www.slideshare.net/bsheim/how-hapiness-happened

Included in the presentation will be a video from another collaborator, Guus Van Den Brekel about our first international project, MeLoW (Medical Librarians of the World) a Google + project. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUHBdNZ3xac.

New Pages!

After consulting with friends, colleagues and fellow librarians, it was decided that HAPI should have pages for countries to make finding events easier. Click on the tabs above to access, or follow the links given below.

So on a trial basis, I am pleased to announce that there is now a page for Australia https://healthaware.org/australia/ and for Spain https://healthaware.org/espana/! The Spain page is in Spanish with links to information in Spanish.

A big thanks for the effort from a group of medical librarians in Spain, and especially to Juan Medino Muñoz for coordinating the information for Spain. Please have a look at their site: http://www.netvibes.com/mundiales.

If you would like to collaborate on a page for your country, please leave me a comment with your name and the country, and your e-mail contact information.

Looking for contributors

I am looking for contributors to this site, who can speak/read other languages so I can add health awareness information for France, Germany, Italy, and other countries to this site.

Please respond and leave me your e-mail address and which country you can help with.

Your contributions will be acknowledged.
