    Web-Based Training: Health Literacy for Public Health Professionals

    Friday, April 9th, 2010

    To help public health professionals in their roles as health information providers and health literacy promoters, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has launched a free “Health Literacy for Public Health Professionals Online Training” program. The purpose of this training is to educate public health professionals about limited health literacy and how to address this issue in a public health context.

    The web-based course may be accessed 24/7 by any computer with Internet access. It takes 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. Continuing education credit is available for a variety of health professionals, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and health education specialists. To access the training program, visit http://www2a.cdc.gov/TCEOnline/registration/detailpage.asp?res_id=2074.

    Fair Use for Educational Purposes http://www.library.ucla.edu/service/12783.cfm

    Thursday, April 22; 10 a.m.-noon
    Charles E. Young Research Library

    Do you provide copies of entire articles to students in your classroom? How about on your course Web site? Do you post materials on your course management system? Do you use your CMS or Web site as a virtual classroom? Simply because the content is for educational purposes does not mean that you can copy and distribute it without considering whether that is consistent with the U.S. Copyright Act.

    With the continually emerging classroom experience and expanded use of the virtual classroom, the appropriate use of copyrighted materials is more important than ever before. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn from campus legal and copyright experts how you can provide the best experiences for your students without violating copyright.

    Admission is free, but reservations are required.
