LINCS is hosting two webinars on Monday the 18th!

First, at 1PM (ET), join the LINCS Community Health Literacy micro group for How Adult Basic Skills Programs Can Build – and Obtain Funding for – Local Partnerships. Hear experienced professionals discuss why and how partnerships between adult basic skills programs and community health centers and hospitals are created and funded. After the webinar, a discussion in the LINCS Community will detail how adult basic skills programs can develop successful local partnerships and help adult learners improve their health literacy.

The webinar will feature experienced professionals who will discuss why and how their partnerships were created and funded. Following the webinar, they will engage in a multiday discussion in LINCS Community groups (Health Literacy, Program Management, English Language Acquisition, and Reading and Writing) to explore how adult basic skills programs can develop successful local partnerships that will help adult learners improve their health literacy.
