Health Literacy

Teaching English for Health

Hi Everyone,

I want to pass on this description of a really great program that they have been doing in Wisconsin for quite a while now. We mentioned it in our recent discussion, Health Literacy in ABE and ESOL - Part 4: What People are Doing? Take a look and let us know what you think!



Health Literacy: an "IN" for 2014!

Hi Everyone,

Did you see Miriam's recent post in the ELL Group about What's in and what's out for adult ESL in 2014?

I was pleased to see that many of the features on the "in" list fit beautifully with teaching health literacy: 

Call for Presenters- Florida Literacy Conference

Health Literacy and Pathways to Health Careers

Hi There,

I'm new to this group, and come from a background in health literacy. There is a discussion going on right now in the Health Literacy Group, and the issue of preparing for health careers came up. I would love to hear from some of you in this group about the question I posed.

Please see this thread:
