Since the COVID-19 pandemic, Google receives 1 billion searches for health information a day.
People are searching online for their health information but where do they go from their searches? What websites are reliable?
Once you get the information, how do you check for credibility?
Everyone can experience low health literacy – the ability to understand information about their health – especially while using the internet and under stress.
On February 22nd Wisconsin Health Literacy was on The Access Hour with the following:
- Talked with one of our library partners Deer Park Library about how our health online: finding information you can trust workshop impacted their community;
- Spoke with Dr. Bethany Howlett about online information related to COVID and resources that can help you, and
- Discussed upcoming health programming that could be available in your community.
