Event description
Delivered as part of Ballyroan Library's Health Literacy Lecture Series

About this event

Ballyroan Library will deliver a series of talks / seminars to support the health literacy of our community to help enhance our physical and mental wellbeing. Health literacy refers to the ability to access, read, understand, and use healthcare information in order to make appropriate health decisions and follow instructions for treatment. Difficulties in accessing appropriate health information and the potential for misinformation can also increase stress and anxiety.

Join HSE Librarian Bennery Rickard for an introduction on how to access appropriate, high quality information sources to support health and wellbeing and for tips on how to avoid misinformation.

This lecture is supported by finding from the Dormant Accounts Fund.

For this event, priority is given to people living in the South Dublin County area. This may lead to the cancellation of your ticket. We appreciate that this may cause disappointment, but hope for your understanding in this matter. Thank you.

Please do not book this event if there is any chance you cannot attend on the day. It is a live event.

All you need to participate is a PC, Mac or smart device with a mic and webcam and a broadband connection.

A valid email address is required to register for this event. South Dublin Libraries will forward the email address you use to register to the facilitator who will then send an access code to your email address to enable you to attend the workshop.

The contact details (name, email address and phone number) you supply to South Dublin Libraries via Eventbrite will be used to contact you in relation to the event and will be accessible by the facilitator on the day of the event for the duration of the event in case they need to assist you in accessing the Zoom session.
