  1. Incorporating Health Literacy in Community Engagement

    September 8, 2021, 10:00 AM

    Written and digital materials are a fundamental component of engaging the community in health education programming. Unfortunately, many adults lack the skills they need to understand and use these materials, many of which do not incorporate common health literacy and plain language best practices. The UAMS Center for Health Literacy has a suite of written and digital materials to engage patients and community members to better care for themselves and improve health literacy skills. These resources were designed to empower individuals to communicate more effectively with providers and to engage in better self-care. This presentation will highlight our suite of community engagement resources and provide an overview of our development process including field testing and plain language best practices.

    September 8, 2021, 10:00 AM

    Graphic novels and manga are everywhere: TV series, movies, and now coming to a library near you! Starting a collection or updating your holdings can be a challenge in this medium. Which superhero do I follow? Should I start purchasing this manga or wait until it’s complete? Graphic novels and manga are a great addition to any library, but it can feel intimidating to purchase items for this collection without having a knowledge base to work with. This presentation will cover what exactly makes up a comic or manga, the different types and genres, how to get started with your collection, and the logistics of getting into this particular art form.

  7. Past the “Friends and Family” Board of Directors
