Health Literacy Discussion List


In response to widespread demand within the health literacy community, IHA stepped up and recreated the old listserv format, and now hosts that listserv for the health literacy community.
The listserv provides a forum to share ideas, get advice, ask questions, and make announcements. There are currently over 1,500 members on this listserv.
The conversations are lively, with topics including:

  • Programs to improve the public’s health literacy
  • Consent signing
  • Usability
  • Numeracy
  • Effectiveness of questions as headers
  • Presenting health literacy through technology
  • Teach back technique
  • Health literacy in the hospital setting, among others

In addition to members’ postings, our moderator poses a question each Wednesday for list members to learn new tips.
