Literacy, Education, & Advocacy Program
Our health literacy program, promoting personal and organizational literacy, focuses on an individual’s capacity to obtain, communicate, and understand basic health information and services to make informed, self-appropriate health decisions.
Our community education programs focus on enhancing parenting practices and behaviors by developing positive discipline techniques, learning age-appropriate child development skills, promoting positive play and interaction between parents and children, and accessing community services and support. Specialty areas include early intervention and special education.
Our patient advocacy programs promotes effective communication between patients and their healthcare providers. Advocacy is understanding the goals you have for your health, having the ability to communicate those goals to others, and asserting your right as a patient or caregiver.
