Health Literacy Month

October is Health Literacy Month–a time for healthcare professionals and organizations to promote the importance of health information that is easy to understand and use.

During Health Literacy Month, you can:

  • Engage staff by:
    • Taking the #PlainPledge. To learn more click here.
    • Hanging a poster in your clinic to raise awareness about the importance of plain language and its impact on patients. The poster is available for healthcare and dental care providers.
    • Sharing tips about clear health communication. Click here for talking points.
  • Use social media to tell your patients and your community that you care about them and want to do all you can to communicate well with them. To join us:
