CALPACT Webinar Training:
Health Communication Matters!
The ongoing challenge to explain and implement the ACA
Thursday Sept 27, 10-11:30am Pacific Time
The most sweeping health policy change in decades – the Affordable Care Act, has created a myriad of challenges in how to convey a complex subject to the public, the media, policymakers, and other professionals. Experts in ACA-related health literacy and health insurance literacy initiatives walk us through ongoing areas of challenge after the passage of the ACA and health communication principles to deliver understandable and compelling content to diverse audiences. Webinar participants will receive a copy of a new tool, “Health Literacy: Undervalued by Public Health?” designed to build capacity for health literacy among public health professionals.
This webinar series will help participants in all walks of public health to apply health literacy principles to their everyday communications. What audiences do you communicate with—consumers, health professionals, disenfranchised communities, your public health peers? Whatever your role in public health, it’s likely that you need to communicate effectively. But how do you know your communication is effective? Only about 10 percent of the general population is considered “health literate.” That leaves the vast majority of us with barriers to understanding the health-related information we read.
