Health Literacy Online Tutorial

A new interactive health literacy tutorial, entitled "Health Literacy: New Field, Now Opportunities" is now available online at no cost. The four sections of this interactive tutorial, developed by World Education and the National Network of Libraries of Medicine/New England region, include: "Health literacy challenge", "Who are the health literacy practitioners", "Successful Strategies and Practices", and "Applying what you have learned".

Listen to the stories of three people who are having a difficult time with information on mammography and breast health, medication compliance, and details related to their job-sponsored health benefits program. Learn about providers who work to help them navigate their way, and test your knowledge regarding the strategies and practices that can assist persons of all literacy levels.

"Health Literacy: New Field, New Opportunities" includes sound and requires the use of Flash plug-in.
