Ochsner Health System-Health Literacy Summit KeyNote Address; New Orleans, Louisiana

“Dear Dr. Parnell,

I heard your presentation in New Orleans a few weeks ago and simply loved it. I was, probably, the only medical librarian in the room but your information was as relevant and meaningful to me as it was to all of the nurses and other healthcare providers. Again, your presentation was great. I loved it, and hope to hear you talk again someday in the future.
