The Institute for Healthcare Advancement (IHA) has issued a Call for Poster Abstracts for its 13th Annual Health Literacy Conference. The IHA conference is an annual, national, three-day meeting with continuing education credits, featuring plenary and break-out sessions and a Poster Session for research and program implementation related to health literacy.
Researchers, those who have created and implemented an innovative program, and/or those with an innovative approach or solution to a problem in health literacy who wish to present a poster should read the information below carefully.
We are particularly interested in posters addressing aspects of health literacy and the Affordable Care Act. If you've created a program, conducted research, surveyed populations, or discovered meaningful information, please consider submitting it in a poster.
Conference attendees include health educators, nurses, physicians, dentists, dietitians, researchers, writers, librarians, administrators, academics, and others.
