Health Literacy Month

In honor of October being a time to formally recognize the importance of health literacy, the Governor has declared October 2023 as Health Literacy Month in Wisconsin. Although certain groups are at a higher risk of experiencing health literacy issues, all people can experience health literacy challenges. Celebrate Health Literacy Month by taking steps to incorporate health literacy into your work:

·        Measure your hospital or clinic’s organizational health literacy

·        Integrate health literacy into curricula for health professionals

·        Organize training on health literacy best practices for staff

·        Incorporate health and health literacy topics into adult literacy programs
