Description Health literacy is always an important component of education but has become even more crucial. Research shows that students with limited education have more health problems, greater difficulty understanding health information, and higher rates of hospitalization. Embedding health literacy into adult education classrooms can provide students with the skills they need to navigate health systems. Join this professional development opportunity to examine tools and techniques for practitioners hoping to incorporate health literacy into their instruction.
Goals This course is free of charge to all California Adult Education Program (CAEP) agencies.

Facilitator The objective of this training is to assist educators in ensuring their students have the skills to communicate clearly with health care providers, ask clarifying questions, evaluate the available information, and make informed decisions.
