Rendezvous – Health Information Literacy

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

Update: A recording of the Rendezvous is now available at

Happy New Year! On Wednesday, January 13th 2010 at 1pm Pacific Time (2pm Mountain, noon Alaska) we will host an RML Rendezvous at about health information literacy.

Come hear from Tori Koch about her work on the the MLA-sponsored Health Information Literacy Pilot project at the Billings Clinic.  The Billings Clinic was one of only 9 sites selected nationally to participate in the project, which focused on using the InfoRx model from the National Library of Medicine.

Tori will be followed by Beth Hill from Kootenai Medical Center, who will talk about her research involving Physician Assistants and their health information needs as well as how they support patient education.

Looking forward to “seeing” you there! For more information please visit How do I connect to the Rendezvous? to check your connection.
