Feedback form is now closed.
Formed by a group of state-based health information practitioners, the Utah Health Literacy Coalition conducted a facilitated workshop last year to develop a path toward a plan to address health literacy needs in the state. Among other things, participants agreed that a solid structure and strategic plan will help the coalition with objectives, especially those concerning training of library staff in health information skills. Join coalition members for a two-way conversation that will cover the topic of health literacy, why library patrons need it, the results of the workshop and the future of health literacy in the state. 

Learning objectives:
Participants will learn the results of a facilitated discussion conducted by the Utah Health Literacy Coalition.
Participants will engage in an open discussion about health literacy needs in Utah and the role of libraries in addressing them.
