What is Health Literacy?
Affecting one’s ability to manage their medical needs and decisions, Health Literacy is the capacity to understand medical information and services in order to make the best decisions for your own wellness.
Why it Should Matter to You:
Data shows that the less literate someone is about health matters, the more likely they are to be hospitalized and to not use preventative services. Only 12% of adults have the necessary understanding to manage their health, leading to higher healthcare costs.1
