Creating Materials to Meet Urgent Health Needs (HLOL #201)

by | Aug 1, 2020

Iris Feinberg, PhD is the Associate Director of the Adult Literacy Research Center at Georgia State University. She is a health literacy researcher and research assistant professor in the Department of Learning Sciences. Dr. Feinberg and a team created the easy-to-read booklet about COVID-19, “Answers to Coronavirus Questions.”

In this podcast, Iris Feinberg talks with Helen Osborne about:

  • Communicating about an urgent medical matter in ways that meet the cultural, linguistic, and literacy needs of a very diverse audience.
  • Refuting myths and explaining truths in an era of rampant misinformation.
  • Creating an effective booklet by working closely with the community, using principles of plain language, and incorporating health literacy strategies throughout.
