COABE National Conference Has New Health Literacy Strand

Are you attending the May COABE national conference in New Orleans?  If so, plan to attend some or all of the 8 exciting and interactive presentations in the brand-new Health Literacy strand. Here’s some of what you’ll hear:

  • How health literacy impacts the health of adult learners and what you can do to better support them
  • Ways to connect adult learners with community health organizations to provide feedback on how to better communicate with at-risk populations
  • Successful methods and materials to teach health in ESL and ABE classrooms, including how to partner with community organizations
  • Helping immigrants improve health literacy and become more engaged with their health and healthcare
  • Connecting adult students with health career opportunities

Hope to see you there! See the COABE conference website for more information or contact Health Literacy strand coordinator Steve Sparks.
