15 Ways to Influence Health Care Policy
and Advance
the Health Literacy Agenda

This toolkit is an expanded version of a presentation from the 4th Biennial Wisconsin Health Literacy Summit (April 12-13, 2011).

“There are two things you don’t want to see being made—sausage and legislation.” It’s time to change this attitude, to roll up our sleeves, to get in there and get dirty. We have a role in the policy-making process as health care providers and professionals, literacy experts and educators, health care consumers and learners. This workshop will equip you with 15 powerful actions you can take to fight for the issues you care about—especially advancing the agenda of health literacy!

The presentation was recorded and will be available on the Health Literacy Wisconsin website.
