Summary
The Records of Philly Health Info span the years 1999 to 2010, and include documentation from pre-planning phases of the project, background information, correspondence, advisory committee meeting minutes, grant funding reports, outreach and partnership files, and website design and maintenance details. The collection is divided into nine series, which resemble the original order in which the material was received. Researchers interested early 21st-century public health initiatives by non-profit organizations will find the collection significant, especially if they are interested in community partnerships and collaboration work. Philly Health Info grew out of and evolved from the College’s earlier (physical) community public health resource center, the Everett C. Koop Consumer Health Information Center (CHIC). In the spring of 2002, the College decided to change the focus of the CHIC from a physical site to a virtual one, Philly Health Info (PHI). With the implementation of PHI, the CHIC became defunct. The centerpiece of Philly Health Info was a web portal that offered health and medical information and a directory of health resources and services for the Greater Philadelphia region. The home page featured a health periodical containing the latest developments in medical care and disease prevention strategies. The portal featured several “master” websites including The National Library of Medicine's/National Institute of Health's MED LINE Plus and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Healthfinder. These websites were supplemented with over 200 links arranged by topic. Online help was offered to patrons of the portal in real time or via an e-mail request form. However, unable able to secure grant funding after 2010, the College and PHI staff re-evaluated the program and its sustainability. The College decided to incorporate PHI into its plans for a new College website. Core elements from PHI, including lessons, trainings, and calendar/events listings, were included on a page (“Public Resources”) of the new Center for Education and Public Initiatives section of the College website. A new website, whatsthemutter.org (WTM), was created for some of the youth-oriented resources. Later, with an active Center for Education and Public Health Initiatives, as well as the College’s Section on Public Health and Preventive Medicine, WTM and the “Public Resources” page were discontinued in 2015. As of 2018, the College does not have a public health resources page or portal
