Public health #publichealth & #healthlit health literacy – share your experience and perspective!

If you are employed at a state, tribal, local, or territorial public health department or agency, you can play an important role in helping to further advance the role of health literacy in addressing public health issues.

This effort will help inform a background paper being prepared for the Institute of Medicine’s Roundtable on Health Literacy.

Please take just a few minutes of your time and go to: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YVSVCFP - there, you will find a brief set of questions that will help us better understand how public health agencies are working to address health literacy.

Please also feel free to forward this invitation to your professional network of individuals who are employed at state, tribal, local or territorial public health agencies in the United States.

Your assistance is critically important!

Thank you!
