LINCS Regional Health Literacy Summits
The National Institute for Literacy, through its LINCS Regional Resource Centers, convened three Regional Health Literacy Summits in 2008. The forums brought together adult literacy and health professionals to share health literacy information and resources for implementing health literacy programs with adult learners. This resource consists of the thirty power point presentations from the three regional summits on health literacy. These presentations focus on research findings related to health literacy, panel discussions on state initiatives to promote health literacy, strategies for building health literacy partnerships, and examples of health literacy curricula.
