Consumer Health Information Justice: Identifying and addressing information-related factors that contribute to health disparities (National Network of Libraries of Medicine)

In this webinar, we’ll discuss many of the different types of information-related factors that can diminish an individual’s capability to live a long and healthy life, such as an inability to recognize and articulate one’s information needs; unawareness of and/or insufficient access to sources of relevant, comprehensible, and credible health information; limited health literacy (including inadequate digital health literacy skills); an inability to act on information; etc. To conclude the webinar, we will focus on some of the many ways in which information professionals are helping to shape these information-related factors so as to optimize every individual’s capability to not only live a long and healthy life, but also to flourish.
