Newly Funded Project Aims to Improve Patient-Provider Communication at the 12th Street Clinic

The Cardinal Health Foundation has awarded funding to the CHL for a new project designed to increase patient engagement and help address health disparities related to health literacy. The aim of this project is to implement the How to Talk to Your Doctor (HTTTYD) program in both English and Spanish and improve existing patient education materials at the 12th Street Health and Wellness Center. The funding will allow us to assess and edit patient education materials for plain language, translate those materials into Spanish, and train health professions students to utilize HTTTYD materials for patient engagement.
