IHA: Gloria Mayer and Michael Villaire
Health Literacy Heroes for March 2013 are Gloria Mayer (President and CEO) and Michael Villaire (Chief Operating Officer) of IHA (Institute of Healthcare Advancement). For a dozen years, Gloria and Michael have organized, led, and otherwise made possible IHA’s annual health literacy conference. From my perspective as an attendee and session speaker, this conference offers a hub of learning not only for newcomers but also long-time practitioners, researchers, and leaders. Even more, IHA’s annual conference provides a welcome gathering place for health literacy champions worldwide. Thanks for all you have done and continue to do. Individually and collectively, you indeed are Health Literacy Heroes! Here’s a link to learn more about IHA and its annual health literacy conference.
