- Podcasts keep growing in popularity. Reasons why audio podcasts offer an accessible, affordable, conversational, and convenient way to listen and learn.
- Health literacy keeps growing, too. How HLOL podcasts have helped raise health literacy awareness and shared strategies to communicate more clearly. This information can benefit professionals, patients, families, and the public.
- Lessons learned from producing 200 HLOL podcasts. Includes taking a risk to try something new, partnering with others who bring needed skills, identifying what does and doesn’t work, and celebrating success all along the way.
