HeLP MN Seniors is a new health literacy program to empower and educate older adults.

“I found the workshops most interesting and helpful.  [I ] have incorporated some of the ideas … during … visits to my medical facility.  The computer sessions had lots of good sources which I have also used.  All in all a very worth-while experience.   Thank You”   ~ HeLP MN Seniors Workshop Participant

There are 36 million adults age 65 or older living in the U.S., and this population struggles with understanding and acting on health information more than any other age group.  It is critical that we help older adults effectively navigate and utilize the health care system and the information they need to stay healthy.  HeLP MN Seniors does just that – with participants reporting that they feel more empowered to ask questions and more successful in finding online health information!
