NYU Langone Medical Center's first annual Patient Education Week will take place from Monday, October 25, to Friday, October 29. Patient Education Week offers patients, families, consumers, and staff access to a variety of hospital, health, and wellness resources and educational materials.
Consumer Health Librarians Sallie Willcox and Lita Anglin are coordinating the libraries' efforts at NYU Langone Medical Center, The Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, and The NYU Clinical Cancer Center. Each location hosts a variety of educational activities designed to enhance the patient experience.
The theme of the week is "Journey to Wellness," a collaborative patient education effort hosted by the Departments of Patient-Centered Care, Nursing, Social Work, and Therapeutic Recreation and the NYU Consumer Health Libraries.
Patient Education Week is held in recognition of Health Literacy Month and Patient-Centered Care Awareness Month. The NYU Langone Medical Center community is invited to attend the Week's activities.
