dc.description.abstract The purpose of the Project is to increase health information literacy as a new service to the Boulder West Senior Center. This project will enhance access to health information for consumers with low health literacy. The Grillo Health Information Center of the Boulder Public Library will partner with the City of Boulder West Senior Center to provide on-site health information resources to the targeted population of seniors who patronize the Senior Center. A Grillo Center trained volunteer will be stationed, at least one day per week, with a laptop computer, at the West Senior Center location to assist seniors with finding reliable on-line health information. In addition, Grillo Center staff will conduct educational activities, including question-and-answer sessions and one-on-one interviews at the West Senior Center Project Site to increase awareness, motivation, knowledge, and use of health information resources. Project staff will also conduct at least one training session for Senior Center staff to assure continuation of information access support when Grillo Center staff are not present. en_US
