SCR CONNECTions:Promoting Health Literacy through Easy-to-Read Materials
Please join us next Wednesday, January 20, 2010, at 10:30 a.m. (CT) for the next edition of SCR CONNECTions. The topic will be: “Promoting Health Literacy through Easy-to-Read Health Materials.” Studies have shown that as many as half of all American adults have trouble understanding and using basic health information. Furthermore, the inability to read, understand, and make use of health information affects people from all backgrounds and walks of life. Learn more about this growing issue and become introduced to some valuable Internet resources devoted to providing health materials in an easy-to-read format for all. The presenter will be Cheryl Rowan, Public Health Outreach Coordinator.
