Given ABS data indicates that only half of Tasmanians consider themselves to be in excellent or very good health, a focus on health literacy development earlier in life is urgent. Dr Rosie Nash believes that health literacy could be the answer to better health outcomes, less inequity, improved educational attainment, and more productive Tasmanians.
Join Rosie as she takes you on a journey explaining how through her 2020 Churchill Fellowship she explored the question of whether health literacy is a health, education or community concern? During her fellowship, Dr Nash visited nine countries, met with 485 experts, practitioners, researchers, and policy makers.
Come along to this talk to find out how Tasmania is already leading internationally, and where we have a lot more work to do!
