    “Health literacy affects every single patient using the healthcare system. Whether you have a college education or you haven’t graduated from high school doesn’t matter when you’re injured, in pain, sleep deprived, scared, or sick and you need to make decisions about your or a loved one’s care. Therefore, clear, understandable information is a safety and ethical issue for health systems and patients alike.”

  • Vaccine Community Outreach
    Southeast Regional Specialist
    Phone: (414) 410-9882

    "The reason this work is so important is because there are several factors that create challenges to vaccination such as education, income, gaps in health access, transportation, poor neighborhoods, mistrust and misinformation around COVID vaccines. I would like to help individuals overcome these challenges. You only have one you so you must take good care of your health. Too many have died from this deadly virus so I must do everything I can to slow down its spread and possibly save lives."
