Health Literacy and 89: An Age Friendly Approach to Health Information: This half day symposium will help health and social service professionals learn more about the impact health literacy has on health outcomes for 89; and provide training in health literacy best practices for finding, creating and evaluating health information materials for people age 60 and older. The symposium will feature a keynote speaker who will give an overview of the challenges facing low health literate 89 and their caregivers, and will be followed by a two-part training in how to find, identify and use health literate health resources for 89, including NLM resources for both health literacy and general health information for 89, such as Medline Plus 89'
