National events and conferences are great places to pick up new ideas, get perspective and inspiration, and strengthen your health communication muscles. They’re also excellent opportunities to meet other health literacy advocates, swap resources, and share strategies.

Here are just a few of our favorite health literacy events coming up this year:

Institute for Healthcare Advancement (IHA) Health Literacy Conference
May 6–8 • Irvine, CA

Tufts University Health Literacy Leadership Institute
June 8–12 • Boston, MA

National Conference on Health Communication, Marketing, and Media
August 11–13 • Atlanta, GA

Health Literacy Research Conference
November 2–3 • Bethesda, MD

There are also plenty of regional events worth checking out, like the Oregon and SW Washington Health Literacy Conference or the Wisconsin Health Literacy Summit. To find events in your area, check your local Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) chapter.

Mark your calendars!

The bottom line: There are lots of great events in 2015 where you can connect with other health literacy advocates.

Update: Silly us — we forgot to mention Plain Talk next week on March 12–13 in Arlington, VA where you can check out our very own Stacy Robison, Sandy Hilfiker, and Adam Moorman presenting!
