Workshop: Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Internet Inclusion and Health
Join a distinguished group of national experts who will be in Cleveland to share their efforts to use Digital Inclusion strategies to improve health. This face-to-face and virtual workshop will provide researchers and practitioners with an opportunity to learn about the work being done in the field of digital health literacy with the goal of extending the impact of everyone’s work.  
The workshop will include: 
  • a participant education piece, in which each person talks a little bit about what they’d like the group to know about their field’s perspective on digital health literacy;
  • a discussion of measures being used and strategic planning to use and share common measures across research in various fields; and 
  • description of successful models for community partnerships.
Participants will learn about work going on in digital inclusion and health across multiple disciplines and share their own work in an ongoing effort to expand impact in the field of digital health literacy.
