Focusing on “Health Literacy in the Real World: Programs and Solutions that Work,” the conference features the latest in health literacy practical tips and tools for improving health literacy, poster presentations, and opportunities for small group discussion and networking with a variety of health professionals.

In addition, this year’s program highlights librarians’ roles in health literacy.  A panel of health sciences librarians, including PNR’s Gail Kouame,  will report on MLA/NLM’s
Health Information Literacy Research Project funded by the National Library of Medicine and several other librarian/health provider partnership initiatives in a session, “Looking for Health Literacy Solutions? Partner with a Librarian.”  Participate in this and other informative sessions and visit the IHA-sponsored Joint MLA and NN/LM exhibit table.  A complete conference program is available at www.iha4health.org ; click on “2010 Health Literacy Conference.”
