One of the Most Valuable Resources…

One of the most valuable resources in understanding the many issues of  HL is the Health and Literacy Discussion List , moderated by Julie McKinney;  Health Literacy List Moderator; World Education jmckinney@worlded.org I save the postings to review and reflect on the weekly topics discussed.    There are many who contribute thought-provoking dialogue and  raise interesting points to the benefit to all who subscribe.      I highly recommend subscribing, if you aren’t already a participant.

Here are some miscellaneous links from a previous discussion “Send Us Your Links” – with most focusing on development  of easy-to-read resources.      These are well worth passing along today.
