Webinar explores health literacy as it applies to vaccination

A May 19 webinar will discuss how health literacy can be an instrumental tool when discussing and providing vaccinations.

Presented by the ADA Council on Advocacy for Access and Prevention, Going with the (Work) Flow: Moving from Vaccination Inaction to Action with Health Literacy is scheduled to stream from noon-1:30 p.m. Central time.

At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to understand some of the current barriers to vaccination for not only COVID-19 but also flu and human papillomavirus; identify health-literate communication techniques; and understand how the use of health literacy strategies can make the vaccination process more successful.

Laura Noonan, M.D., facilitator of the ADA’s September 2020 webinar series Let’s Talk: the Role of Health Literacy in Health & Dentistry, will present.

Dr. Noonan founded and currently directs the Center for Advancing Pediatric Excellence at Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina. Dr. Noonan was the collaborative director for Carolinas HealthCare System’s health literacy initiative and is currently co-chair of the system’s Health Literacy Governance Council.

One-and-one-half hour of continuing education credit is pending approval.

Part 1 of Let's Talk: The Role of Health Literacy in Health & Dentistry and Part 2 are available for on-demand viewing. CE credit is no longer offered for these previous webinars.
