Free Program Teaches Older Adults How To Decipher Health Information
This can be especially true for older adults who may not be familiar or comfortable with all the new and electronic ways they can receive health information.
Rush Generations, a free health and aging program designed for older adults and family caregivers, is offering a 'Health Information: Distinguishing the Good from the Bad' seminar Wednesday, March 28 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. The free program will be held in Searle Conference Center, 5th floor, Professional Building, on the Rush University Medical Center campus, located at 1725 W. Harrison in Chicago.
Staff members from The Library of Rush University Medical Center, including assistant director for public services, Jennifer Diehl, MA, AHIP, will be presenting information on how to make informed decisions about selecting patient health information, discerning the difference between excellent and poor health information resources, and encouraging attendees to become knowledgeable about current patient education materials
