Did you know that your state has an NAO State Advocacy Leader, who can assist you in coordinating your state's efforts? We encourage all states to make the most of their time in Washington, D.C. by coordinating their efforts to maximize impact. For example, coordinated Senate meetings with a robust representation from AHEC members can send a powerful message!

​We are just a month out from the NAO 2016 Washington, D.C. conference, and ​the conference planning committee and subcommittees are furiously working at taking care of all the final preparations and details. There's a reason why we hold these large-scale conferences every other year, and it's because it's an enormous amount of work.​ Many, many thanks to the NAO 2016 Conference Planning Co-Chairs Mary Craig (Erie Niagara NY AHEC) and Anna Wenders (University of South Florida AHEC)​ for their leadership and the tremendous amount of work they and the committee members have done in planning what promises to be another outstanding national conference! I look forward to seeing you there!
With only a month to go, please be sure to register NOW if you haven't already:

The National AHEC Organization is exploring a collaborative partnership with Haymarket Medical Education (an accredited provider of continuing medical education that designs educational activities for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants and nurse practitioners) to help advance NAO's National Training Center in addressing population health initiatives.
To help us better understand which provider health education-related areas to pursue, I am asking you to complete a short survey that will identify areas of common interest which will guide the pursuit of external funding to support population health initiatives utilizing our AHEC network.

A newly published study from Loyola University Medical Center found 63% of their newly diagnosed cancer patients did not know how to find quality health information online about their medical condition. Their patients visited commercially biased advertising websites rather than reliable, vetted medical websites to research their condition. While most of those patients had below-average literacy scores; even the high school graduates from the study visited commercial advertising sites 1/3 of the time. These findings contribute to other work that suggests it is not enough to just teach facts about health topics, but that teaching people how to distinguish good information from bad is an important life skill. http://ow.ly/NsdD300pLMA
