Let's Talk Health

Let's Talk Health (LTH) pilot project consists of a three-pronged approach designed to provide the following services: 1. LTH will provide health literacy instruction to existing ESL classes in the HOPE Literacy, Inc.'s sites, and the University of North Texas Health Science Center's (UNTHSC) Healthy Start and Building Bridges young mothers and refugee participants. 2. LTH will provide how-to instruction on working with the Limited English Proficiency (LEP) populations to those students in the health care professions career track at Tarrant County College (TCC) as well as the professional staff i.e., instructors in these divisions. 3. LTH will provide introduction classes about Health Literacy at community events sponsored by the Hispanic Wellness Coalition. This will include the Carnaval de Salud and the North Texas Health Fair. It is estimated that we will reach a minimum of 600 participants at these events.
