Event Details

This workshop explores strategies for improving written and oral communication within the context of healthcare. After providing an introduction to health literacy, the facilitator will discuss barriers to communication that students with limited literacy skills frequently encounter, including medical jargon and dense texts. We will then discuss ways to reduce or eliminate these barriers by identifying various tools and techniques.  The workshop will include activities teachers could use with their students to build their oral and written communication skills, and improve their own health as well as that of their families.
