We’re excited for you to attend this important conference. When you consider that only 12% of American adults are considered proficient in the health literacy skills they need to effectively navigate and use our healthcare system, you can see that the Health Literacy Conference is an excellent investment. If you make even a small number of incremental changes in how you and your staff interact and communicate with your patients and clients, the results could more than pay for your tuition to attend this conference.

We have kept our tuition rates at the same low rate every year since our first conference in 2002. See how little you will pay to attend this important conference. We pride ourselves on providing each conference attendee with a first-class experience. And remember, your tuition includes:

  • Continuing Education credits
  • Breakfast on Thursday and Friday
  • Lunch on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
  • FREE preconference sessions on Wednesday:
  • Opening Night Reception–cocktails and hors d’oeuvres
  • Poster session on Thursday evening
  • Multiple networking opportunities
  • …and more!

Folks who have attended our conference tell us what really sets the IHA Health Literacy Conference apart is that you can attend four, 1.5-hour skill-building breakout sessions on Thursday and Friday. Roll up your sleeves and learn specific skills to help you function more efficiently and better understand and meet your clients’ and patients’ needs. These sessions provide a wide selection of choices, from tools you can use and programs you can replicate to practicing new skill sets, and more. See the complete agenda here.
