Health Literacy: An Impactful Way to Contextualize Instruction
1:00 PM-5:00 PM
Hosted by Florida Literacy Coalition
Adult learners often face significant challenges when it comes to accessing health services and making good decisions about their health and nutrition. They struggle with understanding medication instructions, nutrition labels and knowing when and where to go for health care services. By integrating health literacy into instruction, learners build language and numeracy skills while gaining valuable information that encourages healthier choices.
Join us to learn about Florida’s national award-winning health literacy initiative and the impressive outcomes that students have achieved throughout the state. This session includes an overview of the freely available Staying Healthy curriculum as well as teaching tips, hands-on activities/resources; and time for discussion and idea sharing. Each participant will receive a copy of the Staying Healthy Student Guide.
