Overview of program:

Are you curious as to why health literacy is an important topic? This is especially true in an era where we have access to a lot of information but may not find the most reliable health information resources.
This program will focus on what health literacy is, the risks of low health literacy and how to evaluate and identify resources to find authoritative health information that can help people make informed decisions about their health.
