||Lori Hall, R.N., is a Health Education Consultant with Eli Lilly and Company with nearly 30 years of health care experience including direct patient care as well as in the diagnostics and pharmaceutical industries. Throughout her career, her focus has been in the areas of training and leadership development, adult learning, and coaching.
Lilly’s Health Education department develops and delivers non-branded, non-promotional, patient-focused education materials aligned with health literacy principles in the areas where Lilly has presence and expertise. Lori played an integral role in Lilly’s entry in the Eleventh Annual Institute for Healthcare Advancement Health Literacy Awards, “Feel Your Best: Patient Education Brochures,” which was selected as the winner in the Published Materials category, thus giving national recognition to the company’s commitment to Health Literacy principles.
Lori is also spearheading an effort to raise corporate awareness on how better health communications helps to improve patient adherence and, therefore, achieve better health outcomes. Through her work with a grass-roots initiative of Lilly advocates from other major patient “touch points”, health literacy pilots are being conducted in the areas of clinical trial management and informed consents, medical call center, medical education grants, and brand marketing. Each of these pilots aligns with the overall vision to help engage, educate, and empower patients to be more active in their own healthcare.
Lori has a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Purdue University. Currently residing in Indianapolis, she dedicates her spare time as a mentor in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana.
