Web-Based Training: Health Literacy for Public Health Professionals

To help public health professionals in their roles as health information providers and health literacy promoters, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has launched a free “Health Literacy for Public Health Professionals Online Training” program. The purpose of this training is to educate public health professionals about limited health literacy and how to address this issue in a public health context.

The web-based course may be accessed 24/7 by any computer with Internet access. It takes 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. Continuing education credit is available for a variety of health professionals, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and health education specialists. To access the training program, visit http://www2a.cdc.gov/TCEOnline/registration/detailpage.asp?res_id=2074.
