GMR to Help Support Health Literacy Summit

Posted by on November 19th, 2018 Posted in: Conferences and Meetings, Consumer Health, Funding, Success Stories


The GMR is excited to announce that Wisconsin Health Literacy has received a Professional Development Award to help support costs related to bringing two plenary speakers for the 2019 Wisconsin Health Literacy Summit! The Summit is held every two years and brings together more than 350 professionals who are focused on how improved health literacy can help individuals become more engaged with their health and healthcare.

Funding from the GMR will support the travel of both Dr. Dean Schillinger, MD, Professor, UC-San Francisco and Founding Director, Center for Vulnerable Populations Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, and Dr. Shonna Yin, MD, MSc, Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Population Health at the NYU School of Medicine / Bellevue Hospital Center. Both individuals are experienced NIH-funded researchers and will be sharing information on some of this work.
