Health information is often complicated and hard to understand, especially for people with low health literacy skills. That's why communicating clearly in health materials is so critical. The good news is that there's a core set of best practices for creating clear health materials.
In this hands-on workshop, you'll get a chance to apply what you've learned to health materials! First you'll learn what research tells us about including numbers in health materials. Then you'll hear what we know — and what we're still learning — about using visuals to help people understand health information. Finally, you'll practice using your new knowledge to make sure health materials are easy to understand — especially for people with low health literacy skills!
