The Health Literacy Annual Research Conference is an interdisciplinary meeting for investigators dedicated to health literacy research.  It is an opportunity to advance the field of health literacy, a method to raise the quality of our research, and a venue for professional development.

Our aim is to attract a full range of investigators engaged in health literacy research including those involved in a broad array of public health, health services, epidemiology, translational, and interventional research activities.


Funding for this conference is made possible (in part) by 2R13MD003392-07 from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) and by 1R13HS022529-03  from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The views expressed in written conference materials or publications and by speakers and moderators do not necessarily reflect the official policies of the Department of Health and Human Services; nor does mention of trade names, commercial practices, or organizations imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.

This work was supported through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Program Award (EA-1150-BMC).
