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.



This work was supported through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Program Award (EAIN-6025).
