The main program that I would attend, Implicit Bias, Health Disparities, and Health Literacy: Intersections in Health Equity is an ALA Midwinter Preconference to raise awareness of implicit bias's connection to health equity and to deepen understanding of health literacy. Participants will explore how libraries can deepen their work in health literacy to make a lasting impact for improving the health of their community. Additional programming for ALA midwinter has not been released but I plan to attend sessions that deal with intersection of health literacy and food literacy.
