2nd Annual Health Literacy Summit


On March 24-25, WKU Libraries participated in the 2nd Annual Health Literacy Summit, a multidisciplinary meeting of health professionals, health insurers, and librarians. Hosted at the Sloan Convention Center in Bowling Green, the Health Literacy Summit heightened awareness of health literacy and its impact on patient outcomes.  A consumer with good health literacy has the ability to obtain, comprehend, and use information related to health and wellness.

Health Sciences Librarian Carol Watwood presented a poster session, “Take Action for Better Health: The Best Web-Based Health Information to Address Kentucky’s Health Challenges.” This presentation highlighted the role of libraries in improving health literacy.
