Leaders Talk about Health Literacy
Are you working hard in your office to promote health literacy guidelines and principles, but could use some help from the top? If so, please visit our “Leaders Talk about Health Literacy” web page and see what the Secretary of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Surgeon General have to say! One of the first steps to developing a health literacy plan is to identify advocates and get buy-in, and you can find some stellar authoritative references on our site.
The National Action Plan to Improve Health Literacy provides a blueprint for efforts to improve health literacy and calls for a response from all sectors involved in health information and services. There are a lot of leaders who support this plan, and our web site includes influential leaders addressing the importance of health literacy and communicating clearly to improve health.
