Health Literacy Forum
February 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
An event every month that begins at 4:00 pm on day Third of the month, repeating until April 15, 2020
Forum leader: Doris Ravotas, Ph.D.
This forum will explore strategies to provide instruction that imparts health and literacy skills for adult learners.
Health is a topic that applies to every adult learner, so using tutoring strategies that meet the health goals of learners is important. Yet, most of the materials for adults do not consistently incorporate health content. According to the Partnership for Clear Health Communication, literacy skills are the strongest predictor of health status, more than age, income, employment status, education level, or racial/ethnic group.
