STAYING HEALTHY:
A Workshop on the Staying Healthy Literacy Curriculum and Resources

Date:  Monday, June 8, 2015
Time:  1:00 – 3:30 p.m.
Location:  Frances T. Bourne Jacaranda Library, 4143 Woodmere Park Blvd., Venice, FL 34293
Facilitator:  Claire Valier, literacy trainer/consultant and co-author of Staying Healthy

Session Description
:  One of the most critical needs of our new English speakers is the need to communicate effectively with medical personnel.  Whether speaking to a receptionist at a physician’s office for a simple appointment, or communicating with a pediatrician about your child’s condition, the ability to share medical and health related information accurately is critical.  As a literacy instructor or tutor, you may find that teaching effective communication strategies for health advocacy a particularly challenging area. 

Facilitated by Clair Valier, literacy trainer/consultant and co-author of the Staying Healthy curriculum, the session will include an overview of Staying Healthy and newly released Staying Healthy for Beginners curriculum. We’ll provide lots of hands-on activities/resources and time for discussion and idea sharing and each participant will receive a copy of the Staying Healthy for Beginners student resource guide.

Join us on June 8th and learn how to successfully integrate health literacy into high beginning and low intermediate and above level Adult ESOL instruction. Increase health literacy awareness among your students and encourage them to make healthy choices in relation to nutrition, preventative health care, accessing health services, and other related issues!

This free webinar open to all Florida adult education/literacy tutors, teachers, and administrators.  Please complete the registration form below.
