About the 2020 Conference

About the IHA's 19th Annual Health Literacy Conference

IHA’s Annual Health Literacy Conference draws professionals from all over the world. This premier event offers something for everyone in the field of health and human services. Whether you work directly with the public or behind the scenes, in patient education or in research, at a small non-profit or a large corporation – the opportunities are endless.

For the 2020 conference, we reimagined the theme and presentations to reflect recent events. The new theme for this year was, “Health Equity and Disparities in the Time of COVID-19.” We shared stories, insights, and encouraged conversations to promote a greater understanding of the pandemic's disproportionate effect on select populations. Most importantly, we are identifying solutions to consider as we work to rebuild a more equitable society.
