Your assistance in identifying potential Roundtable members especially from under-represented minorities is greatly appreciated.
The Roundtable on Health Literacy envisions a society in which the demands of the health and health care systems are respectful of and aligned with people’s skills, abilities, and values. The mission of the Roundtable is to inform, inspire, and activate a wide variety of stakeholders to support the development, implementation, and sharing of evidence-based health literacy practices and policies. The goal is to improve the health and well-being of all people.
Perspectives & Commissioned Papers
Note: The views expressed in perspectives papers and commissioned papers are those of the authors and not necessarily of the authors’ organizations or of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (the Academies). Perspectives papers and commissioned papers are intended to help inform and stimulate discussion. They have not been subjected to the review procedures of the Academies and are not reports of the Academies.
Each action collaborative is an ad hoc activity associated with the Forum at the National Academies. The work each produces does not necessarily represent the views of any one organization, the Collaborative, the Forum, or the National Academies and is not subjected to the review procedures of, nor is it a report or product of, the National Academies.
The Roundtable on Health Literacy consists of myriad stakeholders in the healthcare field, including federal agencies, academics, and private industry representatives.
