  2. Describe an initiative for Environmental Health Literacy for nurses.
  3. Identify three Health Literacy teaching strategies that can be incorporated into your education programs or workshops.
  4. Discuss barriers and solutions in engaging participants and patients in personal behavioral change.

Environmental Health Literacy is the method of breaking down complex information about how the environment affects health into easily understandable chunks, pieces, or words.  It incorporates various teaching strategies including active learning with hands-on activities, discussions, risk reduction strategies, DIY recipes, and sharing websites and resources.  The Green Nursing Project is an initiative set up under the Central Mass Health Literacy Project to educate nurses about Environmental Health Literacy topics and inspire them to take personal and professional action. Nurses learn that exposure to recurrent low-doses or to a mixture of low doses of environmental chemicals contained in household and personal care products including carcinogens, reproductive and neurotoxins, and endocrine disruptors may pose a health risk or compound health conditions for the general population as well as for vulnerable populations. Gaps exist in translating environmental health information to the public and helping people understand the health effects related to chemical exposures and personal actions they could take to reduce exposures.

Religion as a Social Determinant of Health

There is increasing awareness among public health professionals and the general public that the social conditions of poverty, lack of education, income inequality, poor working conditions, and experiences of discrimination play a dominant role in determining health status. But this broad view of the social determinants of health has largely ignored the role of religious practices and institutions in shaping the life conditions of billions around the globe.  This session will address this omission by examining the embodied sacred practices of the world's religions, the history of alignment and tension between religious and public health institutions, the research on the health impact of religious practice throughout the life course, and the role of religious institutions in health and development efforts around the globe. This discussion will complete the picture of the social determinants of health by including religion, which has until now been an invisible determinant.
