#PlainPledge 2019

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 3 ways you can join the 6th 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.

2. Make sure that all of your followers on social media know how important health literacy and plain language are to your organization by sharing our Health Literacy Month #PlainPledge graphic. Download the graphic for Facebook and Twitter.

3. Add the new #PlainPledge frame to your Facebook profile picture. More information coming soon.

We would like to thank Delta Dental of Arkansas for sponsoring this year’s Health Literacy Month activities.
