UAMS CHL and Faculty from the UAMS College of Public Health Receive Funding from NNLM

The UAMS Center for Health Literacy received funding from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) to collaborate with faculty in the Department of Health Behavior and Health Education in the UAMS College of Public Health. The team will develop and test a new health-literate patient tool designed to improve emotional wellness knowledge and related communication skills among adults in rural settings. The new tool will be developed using health literacy best practices and expertise from the UAMS faculty and healthcare professionals. The final product will be available in both English and Spanish. The project will reach a significant number of people in rural Arkansas, with sustainability potential to reach tens of thousands more after the project has ended.
