Health Literacy for New Orleans Hospitality Industry

504HN seeks this opportunity to partner with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine-SCR to impact health literacy in the Greater New Orleans Region. The mission of this partnership would be to promote health literacy and improve the community’s ability to access to information that enables them to make informed decisions about their health. Currently, 504HN has a special focus on the New Orleans Hospitality Workers. The project will increase access to health information for those in the hospitality industry through transformational capacity-building of the region’s safety-net health care system. With this special population in mind, 504HN will develop a program that supports a coordinated system of care with two major components: A Community of Practice for health care staff and a community engagement campaign.
