For anyone who is interested in the role their library can play in promoting the health and wellness of its community through fostering higher health literacy or anyone who is interested in the role health literacy plays in managing one’s health, this webinar will be of interest to you.
Library programs directed toward children, teens, adults, and families deliver credible health information and activities that boost wellness. The Oklahoma Department of Libraries has fostered health literacy throughout the state, forging partnerships at state and local levels. Learn how one library in Miami, Oklahoma, made health literacy a central part of its operations, offering everything from diabetes prevention to yoga classes, as well healthy cooking demonstrations and even a community garden. Get ideas for simple (but powerful) health literacy programs you can offer at your library regardless of your size or budget.
Presented by: Noah Lenstra, Let’s Move in Libraries, Assistant Professor of Library and Information Studies, University of North Carolina, Greensboro; Leslie A. Gelders, Literacy Administrator, Oklahoma Literacy Resource Office, Oklahoma Department of Libraries; and Marcia Johnson, Library Director, Miami (OK) Public Library.
