The first workshop from 10:15am-11:45am will address the question "What can we learn from the similarities and differences between adults who continue their education and those who do not that will enable us to help more low-skilled adults successfully transition to postsecondary education?

The second workshop from 4:15-5:45pm will examine performance on PIAAC literacy, numeracy, and digital problem solving assessments in relation to individuals’ health behaviors and outcomes, including self-reported health status, sources of information about health issues, and preventive health practices.
