A Meeting of the Minds
HEALTH LITERACY: TURNING CONFUSION INTO CLARITY
Featuring Professor Michael S Wolf, PhD, MPH, Professor Monica Peek, MD, MPH,  Catina O’ Leary PHD, LMSW and Gordon Wood, MD

How do patients and their families find their way through the maze of red tape and technical jargon? How can physicians ensure that their patients understand them? How can we use health information in ways that lead to better health? It starts with clear, simple communication. It starts with Health Literacy.

Our moderator, Dr. Michael Wolf is founder of the Health Literacy & Learning Program (HeLP). He is joined by Dr. Catina O’Leary of Health Literacy Media, in St. Louis, Dr. Monica Peek, from the University of Chicago and Dr. Gordon Wood, Hospice and Palliative Medicine physician at Northwestern Medicine and senior VitalTalk faculty member.
