Twitter chat on the health-literate organization

From AHRQ:

In honor of Health Literacy Month the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) is hosting a health literacy Twitter chat on October 25, 2012 at 3 p.m. EDT. Assistant Secretary for Health Howard Koh and AHRQ’s Cindy Brach will be among the participants.

Using the hashtag #healthlit, please join @healthfinder, @HHS_DrKoh, @AHRQNews, @HealthLitMo and others to discuss IOM’s recent paper on the 10 Attributes of Health Literate Health Care Organizations (see http://iom.edu/~/media/Files/Perspectives-Files/2012/Discussion-Papers/BPH_Ten_HLit_Attributes.pdf). Share your ideas on how organizations can help people navigate, understand, and use information and services to take care of their health.

If you have health literacy resources that you’d like to share, either about this issue or related to other health literacy topics, please tweet those before the chat using the hashtag #healthlit. Following the chat, resources will be posted to http://health.gov/communication/literacy/.
