We have been living and working during a pandemic, as well as participating in and bearing witness to profound social upheaval and transformation. We've had to grapple with personal, workplace, community, and policy issues. Yes, we state the obvious; but this year's conference calls for a pause to consider it's full weight and impact.
This year's conference will offer opportunities to reflect on the current state of affairs. It will prompt us to engage in creative problem-solving. And, it will empower our moving forward - finding our way through, and helping shape, this new landscape. Each day of the conference focuses on a topic that is critical to our understanding and serving in the new world.
Day 1: Health Literacy at the Heart of Communication.
Clear communication may no longer be good enough. Misinformation and disinformation is rampant. Media messages are mixed and confusing. How do we best support those we serve? How do we connect with trusted messengers to help people make good decisions for themselves and their loved ones?
Day 2: Nurturing Our Resiliency for the Work Ahead.
We cannot pretend that everything is okay. Our once resilient and stable mental health is trickling away daily -- and many of us are running on reserves. The public has become polarized and desensitization is setting in; this makes our work all the more exhausting. We learn from our colleagues in the health literacy community, and we gain strength from knowing we are not alone. To be effective servant-leaders, we explore ways to reset, refresh, and move forward with strength, purpose, and grace.
Day 3: Health Literacy Post-Pandemic: Strategic Planning & Innovations.
Many have learned valuable lessons for effectively advancing health literacy toward health equity. What can we learn from them? We look at models for success with insight and direction for moving forward.
