2020-2021 President's Symposium Series: Health Literacy as a Social Determinant of Health

The 2020-2021 President’s White Paper Project engages nine students from the schools of dentistry, law, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, and social work from the University of Maryland, Baltimore and the University of Maryland, College Park on a yearlong research project and conversation on health literacy. This year's topic centers on expanding the University's role in improving the relationship between provider and patient, therefore, allowing patients to be well-informed and active decision-makers in their health and the health of their families.
