On behalf of the Midwest Chapter of the Medical Library Association, the Wisconsin Health Science Library Association and the Southeastern Wisconsin Health Sciences Libraries Consortium, we invite you to Milwaukee for next year’s Midwest Chapter/MLA 2019 annual meeting.
Our Sunday night social event will be dinner and exploration at the Harley Davidson Museum®, a Milwaukee icon. Discover the history of the motorcycle, hear the thunder of the different engines and take a selfie riding a HOG!
Connect to Milwaukee through our new streetcar, which will be free in 2019. Use it to travel from downtown to the lakefront. While in downtown Milwaukee, make stops at the Milwaukee Public Museum, the Milwaukee Art Museum, or take a stroll down the Milwaukee RiverWalk and say hi to the Bronze Fonz. Try your luck at Potawatomi Casino, view the Les Paul exhibit at Discovery World, or visit the penguins at the Milwaukee County Zoo.
Collaborate on new and exciting ideas with your colleagues in a stellar conference experience. We are excited to announce that our keynote speaker is MK Czerwiec (Zurwick), RN, MA, aka Comic Nurse. She is the artist in residence at the Feinberg Northwestern School of Medicine in Chicago, Co-founder of graphicmedicine.org, and a leader in the field of connecting clinicians, patients, and practitioners through narrative medicine and telling their stories.
