Prelude to Health Literacy: Preschool Children Encounter Information Access
Oklahoma State University (OSU) will work with the John Knox Child Development Center to add a health literacy component to their curriculum, including parent health literacy classes. The OSU Center for Health Sciences Medical Library staff will provide trainings for the teachers, parents, guardians, and caregivers at the John Knox Child Development Center. Computers and other training equipment will be provided to the Knox Center to enable health literacy training. In addition, once a month each child will receive an age appropriate handout on a health topic.
