Hi everyone.

As you know, we’ve cancelled our Annual Health Literacy Conference, which was scheduled for May 13-15.  We are working on a plan to bring you content from that conference virtually, on our Health Literacy Solutions Center. We’re discussing this with our speakers now. 

Our thought is to spread this content out over a week or two, so you can fit it into your schedules. We will still offer continuing education credits for courses you view, and we will archive these sessions for later viewing (and in most cases, continuing education credits as well).

And we will bring this to you with no charge. What we WILL do is ask you to make a voluntary donation to one of several charities, in an amount of your choosing. 

There are a lot of details to figure out in switching from a live, in-person event to a virtual experience. We appreciate your patience while we get this all figured out.

So that you get notices as soon as we send them, and that you’re ready to view courses on the Solutions Center when they are presented, go sign up for your free account now here: and scroll down to the Join Here box. 

Thanks everyone. I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy, practicing social distancing, and watching out for one another. We’ll get through this together.

IHA's 19th Annual Health Literacy Conference

IHA’s Annual Health Literacy Conference draws participants from around the world to discuss practical health literacy solutions. Whether you work directly with the public or behind the scenes, in patient education or in research, at a small non-profit or a large corporation – there’s something for everyone.

Health literacy must become an integral component of all health programs, quality improvement initiatives, and cost containment efforts to achieve successful outcomes for everyone. This important event happens just once a year. Take this opportunity to experience IHA’s Annual Health Literacy Conference.
