Join us for the first Plymouth Public Health Literacy initiative! Over the next three months, we will cover a range of important topics reflected by six chosen books with 1-hour discussion sessions to take place about the book selected to read during each two-week period. There will be online bi-weekly challenges to test your health literacy and prize drawings (worth $50) at every meeting! Participants that sign up two weeks in advance for each topic will also be awarded their own copy of the book that will be discussed for the selected topic. A limit of 10 books for each health literacy topic (6 topics to total 60 books) will be awarded, so make sure to sign up quickly!
Visit https://plymouthpublichealth.com/fall-health-literacy-program/ for more information and to register. All meetings will take place at 6:00 in the Board Room at the Main Library. The first 10 registrants will be awarded free books. Space is limited – the meeting is capped at 15 participants.
