20th Annual Virtual Health Literacy Conference*

For more information on this course, or to schedule please contact Eskarlethe Juarez at ejuarez@iha4health.org.

The world has changed. We cannot continue to work using the same perspectives, approaches, and beliefs we had a year ago. During this conference, we will examine how world events have put inequities into the
spotlight, how a changed world has affected those we serve, and how we can best address their evolving needs as they try to navigate an altered landscape.
We will question our current assumptions and worldviews. Have we evolved enough to see the world through the eyes of those we serve? If we are successful, we will be able to develop concrete plans to move forward with purpose.

The goal of the 2021 conference is to illustrate how pandemic-related inequities can be mitigated with attention to health literacy. Examples of best practices in research, practice, and policy offer insight into health literacy’s contribution to social justice by improving trust and expanding access to information and care. Virtual sessions are calculated by using the same rubric as the Loma Linda University CME application.  Each session is calculated to the nearest .25 of an hour.
