For more than 20 years, October has been recognized as Health Literacy Month. Health Literacy Month is a time of international observance when hospitals, health centers, literacy programs, libraries, social service agencies, businesses, professional associations, government agencies, consumer alliances, and many other groups work collaboratively to integrate and expand the mission of health literacy.
During Health Literacy Month we urge you to move health literacy awareness to health literacy action! Our actions help connect people needing health care or services with organizations and providers that promote optimal wellness. Our collective efforts will lead to health equity where all people can attain positive health outcomes.
