Advancing Health Literacy Franklin County’s Partner Advisory Committee (PAC) brings together members of Franklin County Public Health’s (FCPH) Equity Advisory Committee and Columbus Public Health’s (CPH) Health Literacy Committee to help support increasing organizational health literacy in our county. The PAC serves as a steering committee, providing input and feedback on our initiative. PAC members participate in and help promote our training opportunities. In addition, PAC members are called upon to engage in various health literacy opportunities, including staff training, pilot projects, QI/evaluation efforts and more. **PAC meeting date TBD**
Columbus Health Literacy Committee meets every other month to learn about different topics tied to Health Literacy. **Next meeting date TBD**
