What is SHARE @ Advocate Health - Midwest

SHARE @ Advocate Health - Midwest serves to identify, acquire, preserve, make accessible, and highlight digital information which has been created by all Advocate Health - Midwest teammates in support of the organization's mission to help people live fully.

Content includes, but is not limited to:

  • Published journal articles
  • Book chapters and books
  • Conference abstracts (full text preferred)
  • Conference presentations and posters (full text preferred)
