Librarians  HeartHealth Literacy

We have a crush on health literacy. Maybe you do, too. Or maybe you only like it as a friend. And of course it’s possible that you have no idea what health literacy is. Whatever kind of relationship you have, it’s about to get better. Join us on Thursday, November 19th at 10:30 AM for a webinar chock full of practical health literacy tips and tricks from Stacy Robison, President of CommunicateHealth and creator of the weekly We Heart Health Literacy series.
