Why do we do what we do?

Health literacy is a $238 billion problem.

Elderly

81% of patients age 60 and older at a public hospital could not read or understand basic material. – Williams

Chronic Disease Patients

People with limited health literacy skills are more likely to have chronic conditions and are less able to manage them effectively. – Institute of Medicine

Immigrants

1 in 5 patients go home to a family that speaks a language other than English. – US Census Bureau
