Project ECHO Health Literacy

The Rural Health Partnership have partnered with the Florida Rural Health Association and Suwannee River AHEC to offer a multi-session webinar series that prepares providers and community educators for evaluating the health literacy needs of different audiences, choosing instructional strategies, and evaluating success. The best part of our program is that your participation is TOTALLY FREE.

Each TeleECHO webinar will be 50-60 minutes long and sessions start at noon (12:00 pm EST). Following a short lecture, each session will include an interactive case study, problem-from-the-field, Q&A session, and opportunity to communicate with health literacy experts. Sessions use the Zoom application for videoconferencing.
