Adult basic skills programs can help adult learners and their families and communities maintain good health. Good professional development -- for both adult educators and for the health agencies they might work with -- is vital.
You are invited to an Open Door Collective webinar on “Addressing Health Disparities: What Health Practitioners and Adult Educators Can Do Together.” It will draw on ODC health-related publications, and ODC presenters Marcia Hohn, Greg Smith, Paul Jurmo and David Rosen will discuss why and how health educators, healthcare providers, and other supporters of community health can collaborate in various ways with adult basic skills programs — especially now in the time of COVID-19. The webinar will be held on August 4th, 2020 at 2:00 pm Eastern Time.
