Ever wonder how an app gets created? Wish you could get more evidence into practice? Ever tear your hair when you see an interface that could be so much better? Here’s an opportunity to bring your information organization skills, your people skills and your practice savvy to the source! Consider joining–or creating–a team for the Philly Health Codefest at Drexel. Sponsored by Drexel’s ischool, recently rated #1 in Health Librarianship–bringing people, information and technology together.
As both an informatics and an LIS educator, I strongly recommend taking advantage of this opportunity to make sure your perspective is heard. This is a wonderful way to showcase what LIS brings to the table, and what you can do to advance your career in the health sciences arena.
