Workshops for Community


Do you belong to a community or group interested in health literacy?

Health Literacy can help us to look after our own health and the health of others. Book a health literacy workshop for your group to learn how to:

  • Get the most out of your next medical appointment.
  • Support family members and others to look after their health.
  • Find reliable health information online.

Workshops can be tailored to meet your needs and can be held where and when it’s convenient for you. The Health Literacy Project covers all Northern NSW, from Grafton to Tweed.
