“Hello Friends and Colleagues in Health Literacy,

Wisconsin Literacy and the Health Literacy Regional Network want to remind you of a great opportunity to learn about health literacy coalitions from various state and system models that will be featured in a Pre-Summit meeting of the 4th Biennial Wisconsin Health Literacy Summit in Madison, WI on April 11-13.  The Pre-Summit meeting will take place on Monday, April 11 at noon at the Sheraton Hotel with a complimentary lunch sponsored by our friends at Health Literacy Missouri.  For the rest of the afternoon we will travel around a “World Cafe” to learn about 6 different state/system health literacy coalition models – how they started and how they sustain their work.  We’ll also learn about two new national health literacy websites hosted by CDC and IHA.

Please see the link below for the updated agenda for the Pre-Summit meeting along with updated information on the Wisconsin Health Literacy Summit, April 12-13.  While there is no cost for the Pre-Summit meeting you will need to RSVP at We also encourage you to come prepared by reviewing this document:
