Environmental Health Literacy: A Framework for Responding to Environmental Exposures in Free-Choice Contexts

Abstract

The emerging framework of environmental health literacy (EHL) provides a context for understanding how environmental exposures affect health. Its application can lead to greater engagement of underserved populations and improved understanding of the role of self-efficacy beliefs in nonformal education. This poster summarizes the results of a systematic review of the literature on characterizing and measuring EHL and identifies implications for connecting EHL and free-choice learning.
