Customer Testimonial
“It is imperative for our Spanish speaking community to have access to quality health materials that are accurate. We are fortunate to have the Spanish language health education materials that were developed by the UAMS Center for Health Literacy, and to use these materials often at our health window at the Consulate of Mexico. We know our community is getting health information they can use.”
