How can we boost the implementation of evidence-based practices that will improve the health and well-being of the populations we serve?As people are turning to Wikipedia for information, we want the information they find to be complete, up-to-date, and accurate. For the International Year of Sound (IYS 2020), NHCA is supporting Wiki4YearOfSound2020, a campaign by NIOSH and the Acoustical Society of America to improve Wikipedia articles related to sound. IYS 2020 highlights the importance of sound in all aspects of life and aims to improve public awareness of sound-related issues at an international level. One can participate by promoting the project, suggesting a topic that should be a Wikipedia article and improving or translating existing articles.Educational programs can count on Wiki Education Foundation tools to train students to contribute high-quality content to Wikipedia as a course assignment. The Wikimedia outreach dashboard allows anyone to contribute and monitor progress. Workshop attendees will learn the basics of Wikipedia editing, make substantive changes to Wikipedia articles within their area of expertise, and find out more about the Wiki Education Foundation's classroom program. ***Please create a Wikipedia account in advance of the event and bring your computer to the workshop. ***
