    This videotape is a copy of a film of the speech given by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt at the dedication of the Bethesda, Maryland campus of the National Institute of Health on October 31, 1940. President Roosevelt, standing on the portico in front of Building 1, speaks about the role of government in promoting and stimulating research into cancer and other diseases, and the work of the Public Health Service and the National Cancer Institute. Speaking in the context of the war in Europe, President Roosevelt emphasizes that the "total defense" of a nation relies not just on military might, but also on a strong and healthy population.Gov. O'Connor of Maryland and Dr. Thompson also appear. [Portions of the video and audio of the full 12-minute speech are missing.]

    Produced by the National Archives and Records Administration.

  • Outreach and Services Play all

    NLM conducts much of its outreach in partnership with other libraries and community organizations across the nation. NLM supports many of its health information outreach projects through the NN/LM program. Working under 5-year contracts with NLM, eight Regional Medical Libraries (RMLs) coordinate NN/LM outreach at local, state and regional levels. Each RML is responsible for identifying and responding to health information needs among the health professionals and general public within its Region. Special attention is given to the needs of minority and other underserved populations as well as health professionals practicing in rural and inner city communities and health professionals unaffiliated with an institution maintaining a health sciences library. The RMLs also focus on outreach to public health and public library personnel. RML staff travel across the regions demonstrating MEDLINE®, MedlinePlus®, PubMed® and other NLM resources for health professionals and the general public. The RMLs fund numerous outreach projects and other awards to Network member libraries and community organizations.
