IHA Conference 2013 - Let's share what we learned!

Hi Everyone,

Last week I attended the IHA (Institute for Healthcare Advancement) Health Literacy conference. It was the 12th annual HL conference, making it the longest running conference dedicated solely to HL. I hope that some of us who were there can help share what we learned with this LINCS Community.

I'll go first, and mention some highlights:

Health insurance navigator program

FYI, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) have released their Funding Opportunity Announcement for the health insurance navigator program. Organizations and individuals may apply to be navigators, and the application deadline is June 7, 2013.

Mobile App Challenge from Health and Human Services Offers $50,000 Prize!

Please help us share the following announcement. We are sure this app challenge will be of interest to the health literacy community, as it provides an opportunity for health literacy professionals to provide input and feedback in the development of a mobile app.  How can a mobile app help health consumers make informed health decisions based on healthfinder.gov’s information about services covered under the health reform law, also called the Affordable Care Act (ACA)?
