This year the MAHSLIN annual meeting will focus on Disaster Medicine and how librarians can help. Dr. Eric Goralnick, Medical Director of Emergency Preparedness, Brigham and Women’s Hospital will be our keynote speaker and Stacey Arneson, Branch Chief, Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC) at the National Library of Medicine will discuss the resources available on the DIMRC web site. Sarah Levin-Lederer from the NN/LM New England Region will share with us local resources and how the RML can help.
In the afternoon, we will be conducting a tourniquet training session from the program called “Stop the Bleed” Homeland Security. As more and more people are exposed to medical emergencies this service empowers the general public to learn proper bleeding control techniques including how to use hands, dressings, and tourniquets.

There will be plenty of time to network with colleagues and vendors! The date is March 15, 2019 and we will be meeting at the Waltham Woods Conference Center (same as last year). Early registration is now open. Here is the link to registration –
