Health Literacy Association – Open Forum Meeting

Tuesday November 3, 2015, 7:30am – 8:30am

Please join us for an open forum to discuss a new health literacy association — Association for Health Literacy (AHL).

An Association for Health Literacy must be run by and for its members. Attend this year’s open forum on forming a health literacy association at HARC 2015  to hear an update and get more involved. Review steps taken to date and a vision for moving the idea from concept to reality. This includes the forming of working groups. Participants will be invited to join a working group discussion, or propose a working group and take on a leadership role as there is much work to be done. Working groups will report back to the larger group on identified needs, next steps and commitments.
