Kicking Off Health Literacy Month

    The new Health Literacy Community opened just in time for Health Literacy Month. The LINCS Health Literacy Discussion List, which has been an important networking resource for many years, has switched over to a new platform with more features for sharing information. The Health Literacy Group is one of 13 Groups in the LINCS Community, and you can register at this link:

    https://community.lincs.ed.gov/

    Please join us in this new community to stay connected and involved in national (and international) health literacy networking!
