CDC Launches New Health Literacy Web Site and Blog
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) invites you to visit Health Literacy: Accurate, Accessible and Actionable Health Information for All, the agency’s new health literacy web site www.cdc.gov/healthliteracy<http://www.cdc.gov/healthliteracy>. The site provides information and tools to improve health literacy and public health and make health information accurate, accessible and actionable for all. The resources are for all organizations that interact and communicate with people about health, including
* public health departments,
* healthcare providers and facilities,
* health plans,
* government agencies,
* nonprofit, community, and advocacy organizations,
* childcare facilities and schools,
* the media, and
* health-related industries.
The site features health literacy organizations by state and planning tools to use the National Action Plan to Improve Health Literacy. The health literacy blog (http://blogs.cdc.gov/healthliteracy/) provides a forum for commentary and discussion of vital issues in health literacy improvement.
Join CDC in implementing positive changes to improve health literacy. Key agencies and organizations with an interest in school health education and health literacy, in general, are invited to add a link to their web site.
