Between 17-19 November, our colleague Mădălina Coman participated in the 3rd European Health Literacy conference in Brussels, Belgium. During her poster presentation ”Predictors of health literacy in type 2 diabetes patients from Romania” she discussed the most important predictors that influence health literacy – older age, low treatment adherence and not discussing about a healthy eating plan with the medical provider.

Mădălina also participated in stimulating sessions focused on improving health literacy at an international level. The sessions focused not only on methods of improving the health literacy, but also on designing policies meant to raise awareness on the importance of health literacy during daily activities.  ‪#‎3EHLC‬
