Health Literacy Month 2020

Health Literacy Month

October is Health Literacy Month and healthcare organizations are encouraged to take this opportunity to simplify basic health information for patients and their families, so they can make informed decisions and be effective healthcare team members. This month MHS will highlight that health literacy is about the entire process of exchanging healthcare information. It is not just about reading and writing, but also about how people learn and communicate about their health.

To enable others to share information within the DoD community, our Monthly Communications Toolkit (CAC required) provides the MHS enterprise with customizable, ready-to-use material to promote these topics and other issues important to the health and wellness of the DoD community.
