Health literacy during COVID-19

In honor of Health Literacy Month, we have launched a campaign to promote health literacy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The fast spread of COVID-19 means people are expected to absorb health information and change their habits very quickly. Health care providers and organizations are working hard to offer simple advice and recommendations. But there is still an overwhelming amount of complex and false health information that patients need to sift through.

We believe that using plain language and other health literacy best practices is more important than ever before. That is why we are sharing simple messages and resources you can use to help educate patients and the general public. Read our October 2020 newsletter or visit our resources page to learn more.
