Catalonia Health Promoting Hospitals Network- Health Literacy

June 11, 2008

On Friday, June 13th, 2008, Catalonia Health Promoting Hospitals Network will be presented at CosmoCaixa. The Network has organised a very interesting meeting titled Health Literacy with Rima Rudd (Senior Lecturer on Society, Human Development, and Health at Harvard School of Public Health) as a key speaker.

Rima Rudd is a health educator whose work centers on the design and evaluation of public health programs for social change. She has worked primarily in school and community settings. Her interests focus on pedagogy, health and literacy links, and participatory and collaborative strategies for learning and for change [+info]

The aim of the meeting is: to provide a forum for ideas and discussion about new communication trend between hospitals and citizens within healthcare system in developed countries.

A month ago I was invited by Cristina Iniesta to participate in one of the network meetings to present Internet, Health and Society. Implications for health promotion in Catalonia. I would like to congratulate Cristina Iniesta and her partners for the organization of the meeting.
