#PlainPledge 2018

During health literacy month, the UAMS Center for Health Literacy is urging healthcare professionals to take a pledge to stop using jargon that is hard to understand and instead use words that people know the first time they hear or read them.

There are two ways you can join the 5th annual #PlainPledge. You can:

1. Lead your organization in promoting the importance of plain language by taking the #PlainPledge with your coworkers. Download everything you need here.
