Health Literacy Research and Practice

Special Supplement on Health Literacy
and Adult Basic Education

Health literacy and adult basic education practice have much in common, although they have largely developed as separate research, policy, and program domains. We hope this special issue highlights ways in which the health literacy and adult basic education fields have intersected and influenced each other to the benefit of people with the greatest literacy and numeracy challenges. We are particularly interested in submissions from practitioners working in public health and/or adult education who work in community-based organizations, coalitions, and public sector partnerships that have a focus on health literacy promotion. We are happy to consider a full range of articles as described in the author instructions.
