Meet our clinical librarians

Jill Barr-Walker, MPH, MS​
Jill provides support for evidence-based research and instruction to clinicians, researchers, and staff located at ZSFG.
Nora Franco
Nora provides teaching and research services to our diverse and distributed campus community with a focus on clinical support for staff at ZSFG.
Several of the articles Jill found were validating on this complicated case I have. I so appreciate her time and effort!
Staff member, DPH
Nora helped me with a literature search on methods for avoiding induction of labor. This helped us revise our approach to prolonged pregnancy, putting key information in the hands of our patients.
Clinical Professor, ZSFG
Jill was invaluable in helping me with the literature review for our qualitative paper. We’re so lucky to be able to work with her!
Faculty, ZSFG
