Why HLM

HLM was founded in 2009 as Health Literacy Missouri. What started as a small initiative to improve the health of people in Missouri has grown into a wide-reaching organization with partners and clients all over the world in the name of health literacy. In 2017 we changed our name to Health Literacy Media to reflect that growth and the work that we do. Since our beginning, we have been a leading force in the field and we don't plan on stopping any time soon. 

Our team is passionate about improving health, excited about the work we do, intentionally diverse in a variety of ways, intensely collaborative, and values both scientific evidence and creative innovation. If we sound like your kind of people, join us!
