The Welch Library is proud to be one of the Bloomberg School of Public Health partners for twice monthly "Day at the Market" days. Twice a month we'll be having an information table at the Northeast Market. Our table will be manned by Stella Seal, the Welch Library Hospital, Health and Community Services Director, along with communication staff members Vivian McCall and Alonzo LaMont. We're happy to be participating with other Hopkins Departments, and if you happen to come down to the market, feel free to stop by. Look for our Welch Library banner! Below you'll see the "Market Day" focus for January. But if you have any questions, we're there to be of service. See you there!

National Cervical Cancer & Radon Awareness Month
We will purpose to raise awareness about how women can protect themselves from HPV (human papillomavirus) and cervical cancer.
HPV is a very common infection that spreads through sexual activity. It’s also a major cause of cervical cancer.
Radon can have a big impact on indoor air quality
Do you know your “Family Health History” ?
Family health history refers to health information about you and your close relatives.
Family health history is one of the most important risk factors for health problems like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer.
A risk factor is anything that increases your chance of getting a disease.
