Health literacy conference & Hodges' model

The poster is completed for the health literacy conference today in Manchester. As befits such a broad conceptual framework my effort is general in scope and seeks to highlight (my interpretation of) health literacy themes mapped to Hodges' model. At only A2 in size - that's four A4 pages there will be grander and better produced posters; but it is great to be able to attend, contribute and network.

I've also looked at the programme again and there are some intriguing talks to follow and researchers to meet. In preparing the poster I came across the following paper:

Murray and Johnson et al. The association between cognitive ability across the lifespan and health literacy in old age: The Lothian Birth Cohort 1936, Intelligence, 39,4, July-August 2011,178-187.

I've based one of the slides on a previous post and will add another on W2tQ soon. In writing this I noticed that on the tags front 'literacy' totals 25 (26 now!) and 'lifelong learning' = 27. Some synergy there then.
