The 2nd European Health Literacy Conference
10-11 April 2014
Dear Colleagues - Thank You!
The Department of Public Health, Aarhus University and Health Literacy Europe thank all participants and contributors for the successful 2nd European Health Literacy Conference in Aarhus on 10-11 April 2014.
We hope had unique opportunities to share knowledge, engage in fruitful debates, and make new friends and connect with future collaborators. Thanks to the participation of leading Nordic and international experts it was possible to form a programme with a variety of topics related to the theme: ”Health Literacy in populations and settings - developing the research base”.
The programme was organised in three plenary sessions, four parallel oral sessions and two parallel teach-ins. Altogether the conference offered 22 oral presentations and several speeches held by leading health literacy researchers. Throughout the conference there was the opportunity to explore the new and inspiring research projects presented in the 35 posters. In addition, the four pre-conferences provided a valuable platform for knowledge exchange and networking. The Rainbow and Boy sculpture at Aros Art Museum ensured a triggering impact during the social programme.
We wish you a fruitful follow-up of the conference and look forward to seeing you again on the 3rd European Health Literacy Conference in Brussels in 2015.
