Aidy Weeks: Co-Recipient of the Carla Funk Governmental Relations Award

NCNMLG would like to recognize Aidy Weeks, the co-recipient of the 2023 Carla Funk Governmental Relations Award from the Medical Library Association for her work with the Hispanic/Latinx Inclusive Terminologies Project.

Weeks who is the Director of the School of Medicine Libraries, University of Nevada, Las Vegas and her co-recipient, Ruby Nugent, at the National Jewish Health Tucker Memorial Library in Denver, led two project teams that reviewed Hispanic/Latinx terminology specific to the United States as a way to help capture and recognize the diversity of this population.
