Abstract / Description

On September 22, 2022, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's Roundtable on Health Literacy hosted the first of three public workshops in a series titled “The Roles of Trust and Health Literacy in Achieving Health Equity.” The first workshop in the series explored how using health literacy best practices in clinical settings might impact trust in health care institutions, and how that, in turn, might positively impact health equity. The following two workshops focused on similar questions but in different contexts: rather than clinical settings, they focused on public health institutions and community settings.
