The New York Academy of Medicine, 1216 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street, New York, NY 10029


Free, but advance registration is required. Limited to 25 participants.


Co-sponsored by Wikimedia New York

Participants will learn about Wikipedia and edit Wikipedia pages. There will be an introductory talk before hands-on activities. Hands-on activities include editing a health-related article on Wikipedia and using Grey Literature Report resources as source material. Please bring your own computer/device if you are able. Limited laptops will be made available by the Academy.

Come prepared to think critically, gain knowledge on a health topic, cite one source, and learn something new.

No background experience necessary. You can create a Wikipedia Account beforehand and read about editing for Wikipedia.
