Health Literacy: Online Resources for Journalists
As an intriguing community forum on health literacy gets underway at USC today, check out these great resources for learning about the subject provided by one of the forum's organizers, Ellen Iverson, an assistant pediatrics at the USC Keck School of Medicine and deputy director of the Community, Health Outcomes, and Intervention Research Program at the Saban Research Institute at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.
You can follow the forum on Twitter using the hashtag #HealthLitLA, and we'll have more coverage later today.
