North Display - Health LiteracyMCW Libraries North Display - Health Literacy

According to MedlinePlus, "Health literacy is the ability to understand health information and to use that information to make good decisions about your health and medical care. Health information can overwhelm even people with advanced literacy skills. About one third of the adult population in the United States has limited health literacy."  The North display currently features information on health literacy, including online resources, statistics on health literacy, and recent MCW research and projects on the topic of health literacy.

 

Books in any of the display cases are available to check out.  Please contact the MCW Libraries for additional information on the resources we can provide on these topics or if you have any questions: asklib@mcw.edu or 414.955.8302.
