Abstract:The Pacific Southwest Regional Medical Library of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) hosted a one-day educational symposium entitled “Stake Your Claim to Health Literacy” in January 2004. The symposium focused on the practical knowledge and tools needed to participate in health literacy initiatives within the health care and health information environments. It provided a unique opportunity for the participants—medical librarians, public librarians, health care interpreters, and health educators— to hear from experts and to learn about potential health literacy partners. The event, cosponsored by three regional chapters of the Medical Library Association, preceded their joint meeting in Sacramento, California. An advisory group of library and literacy professionals from the NN/LM Pacific Northwest and Pacific Southwest Regions, along with a second-year National Library of Medicine associate fellow, planned, implemented, and evaluated the symposium.
