Informed Caring is a portal to information resources for health professionals.
This site is maintained by the Wisconsin AHEC Statewide Program Office to serve those working in local health departments, federally qualified community health centers, and others providing health services in rural and underserved communities in Wisconsin — particularly those without access to academic and hospital libraries. The site was originally created by Northern Wisconsin AHEC through an NLM (National Library of Medicine) grant (# 1 G08 LM008280-01 A 1) They are grateful for the past participation of Bellin Hospital, the Bellin College of Nursing and Bay Area Medical Center as well as the Northeastern Regional Office of the Division of Public Health, the Nicolet Federated Library System and the Northeastern Wisconsin Area Health Education Center (NEWAHEC). Funding for enhancement to the site was provided through a Wisconsin Partnership Fund grant from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. Outreach and further development is supported in part with Federal Funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. N01-LM-6-3503 with the University of Illinois at Chicago. Outreach to teaching sites is also supported in part through a contract with the National Health Service Corps (NHSC).
