Literacy Network Meeting
October 7, 2021 @ 11:30 am – 12:45 pm
Impact of Literacy on the Health of the Family
Rescheduled for October 7 via Zoom
October is Health Literacy Month! Join us for a virtual meeting to learn more about the impact of literacy on the health of the family.
Studies have shown that patients with inadequate literacy have less health-related knowledge, receive less preventive care, have poorer control of their chronic illnesses and are hospitalized more frequently than other patients. When families understand health information, they can make good health choices.
11:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m.
Thursday, Oct. 7
Leslie Gelders, Okla. Dept. of Libraries
RSVP Deadline: Monday, Oct. 4
