    • All of Us Digital Literacy Projects
      Resources were created to support communities as they access and use health information online and participate in medical research studies, particularly All of Us.

  • Medication Label Project
    In this multi-phase initiative, we work with pharmacies and prescribers in Wisconsin to make prescription medication labels easier to understand for patients. Pharmacies across the state have joined the project to redesign their medication labels using United States Pharmacopeia (USP) guidelines. We are now in Phase 4 of the project, where we will be working with prescribers to adopt the evidence-based Universal Medication Schedule when prescribing medications. Click on the link above for more information about each phase of the project and the activities in each.
