Press Release: Discussion on Interprofessional Health Care Education at Virtual Ability

Presenters will discuss their learning and experience from the recent All Together Better Health (ATBH) conference in Kobe, Japan. They will link the information from ATBH to key concepts of health literacy that they have used in Second Life in the Garden of Healthy Aging. They will also discuss new developments in health literacy for clinical environments in real life.

Presentation and discussion in text only. Powerpoint slides will be shown illustrating the ideas discussed.
