FREE to a Good Home - AudioDigests from 2015

The Mercy Library has 1 year's worth of  2015 AudioDigest CDs  available for FREE.

Although these audio CDs are too old to apply for CE credits, they do still offer excellent information for Physicians, PAs, Nurses, and other health professionals.

Available Subject areas include the following :

  • Family Practice
  • Pediatrics 

Also available on Audio CD:

  • ACCEL (Cardiology)
  • Journal Watch 
  • Pediatric Update
  • Pediatric Board Review 2014-15

Look for them on the used  book sale table.     Come early.  These are HOT items!   

Too far from Mercy?  No sweat!   I'm willing to inter-office a selection of  5-10  audio CDs anywhere within legacy Affinity or Ministry Health Care. 

Just tell me which series you're interested in.  

Why are we giving them away?
--limited shelving space for audiovisuals
--CE credits are available only for 3 years since date of publication
--Our libraries emphasize the most up-to-date info, so we want to make room for more recent issues.
