The first workshop is titled “Health Information @ Your Fingertips,” and will be presented twice at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20 and 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 24. Both workshops will be at the McKinney Memorial Public Library.

“Health Information @ Your Fingertips” will focus on the Consumer Health Information Center’s purpose, location and its many resources.
