About Donna O’Malley

I first became involved with public health while advising UVM medical students on how to find good information to support their public health projects. Since then I’ve supported faculty and students in several UVM Colleges in finding sources, organizing information and identifying reputable publishing venues. I am currently a co-instructor for the Culminating Project Experience.

I was recently awarded a Medical Library Association Sewell Stipend. The stipend and associated support are designed to integrate medical librarians into the activities of the American Public Health Association.
