Note: This pre-conference program takes place in the afternoon. Attendees are invited to join us for lunch beginning at 12pm, but the workshop itself will not begin until 1:30pm.
This face-to-face and virtual workshop will provide researchers and practitioners with an opportunity to learn about the work being done in the field of digital health literacy with the goal of extending the impact of everyone’s efforts.  
The workshop will include:
  • a participant education piece, in which each panelist shares what they’d like the group to know about their field’s perspective on digital health literacy
  • a discussion of measures, strategic planning and common measures across research in various fields
  • descriptions of successful models for community partnerships
Participants will learn about work going on in digital inclusion and health across multiple disciplines and share their own work in an ongoing effort to expand impact in the field of digital health literacy.
