Hashtag of the Week (HOTW): Health Literacy Month & more (Week of October 8, 2012)

Regular readers of this blog have already heard about National Information Literacy Month, and some of the related activities. It is, of course, also Health Literacy Month and National Medical Librarians Month.

These are all critical topics in our work, with librarians and literacy as perhaps book ends to the skills needed to support informed consent and participative decisionmaking. This is a great week to highlight some of the Twitter conversations and hashtags that are being used in dynamic conversations around these issues. You can see the hashtags in the tweets below as live links, but for quick reference the big ones are:

#healthlit = health literacy
#HLM = Health Literacy Month
#hchlitss = health communication, health literacy, and social sciences
#infolit = information literacy
#medlibs = medical librarians
