Quote
“I want to thank IHA for 19 years of outstanding conferences advocating for growth in the field of health literacy! I am incredibly proud of our work at the Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine reshaping the future of doctor-patient communication, and am humbled by this lovely award. Our achievements at OHSU would not be possible without strong visionary leadership from our Deans, the amazing staff in our Teaching Services Office, excellent faculty instructors, and outstanding medical students. I wish we were all sitting down for lunch under the big IHA tent, where I could say all this publically, and thank everything for all that you do to help make the world a better place... Hope to see you all next year!” Cliff
