Health Literacy Month is a time for organizations and individuals to promote the importance of understandable health information. Health literacy is something that affects everyone and is dependent on numerous factors; including communication skills of the patient or professional, culture, or knowledge of health topics. All factors result in being able to make appropriate health decisions for yourself or loved ones. For more information and to build your skills and work to become more familiar with health information and services, visit the Centers for Disease Control health literacy webpage.
