Community is an important aspect of health literacy. By getting together and sharing our ideas and best practices, we’ll all do a better job.
Here are a few ways you can connect with other health literacy professionals.
Health Literacy Discussion List
The Health Literacy discussion list is a moderated email list with more than 1600 members. Join us for lively and spirited conversations about a range of health literacy topics. Members of the list have a range of expertise and work in a variety of different settings. This list is sponsored by the Institute for Healthcare Advancement.

Our LinkedIn group has active discussions about our annual health literacy conference, which is held in the spring, along with other news and conversations about our field.
We post a variety of news and best practices on our Facebook page. It’s a great place to stay informed about what’s going on in our field and how the news media and others recognize what we do.
Our Twitter account is another great way to find out about current news and happenings. When we find them, we also use Twitter to let you know about templates, samples, and other ideas. These things can help you become a better communicator.
