Health Literacy Leadership Institute
June 10-14, 2013, Tufts University School of Medicine, Downtown Boston

This one-week Institute will directly support the work of health professionals and educators engaged in health literacy work to transform public health and healthcare delivery in the United States and abroad. Those working towards improving patient-provider communication and healthcare quality as well as those working directly with patients or adult learners in educational settings will find the Institute to be directly applicable. Peer learning and the sharing of research and best practice from professionals in the fields of health and education are core components of the Institute’s educational approach. Participants will work on a curriculum development project of their choice resulting in a final product that is current, comprehensive, informed by research, and reflective of best practice.
