    "To address concerns about the barriers for older adults to understand and use health information, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) convened an Expert Panel on Improving Health Literacy for Older Adults on December 67, 2007, in Atlanta, Georgia. The panel's deliberations and conclusions are a critical component of efforts by CDC's Division of Health Communication and Marketing, which is part of the National Center for Health Marketing (NCHM), to develop an agenda to improve health literacy for all U.S. population groups. The meeting was designed to assess health literacy issues among older adults and to identify opportunities for health professionals at CDC and other organizations to better meet the health communication needs of older adults." - p. 2
