Health Insurance Now
Health insurance is complicated, and choosing a plan that best fits your needs can be difficult for anyone, and particularly for people who have health insurance for the first time. These award-winning health insurance literacy videos can help.
Nowadays people are using the internet for just about everything, especially for finding health information. So we decided to create a video series to meet people where they are: the web.
Health insurance and oral health fotonovelas
Focus groups and interviews revealed a need for education on how to get and use health insurance and oral health care in the Latinx community. We created 2 fotonovelas to fill this gap.
We set out to test a theory-based measure of health literacy. To do so, we included the newly developed Calgary Charter on Health Literacy scale in Pre- and Post-evaluation of the Life Enhancement Program (a program focusing on health literacy and the prevention of chronic disease).
The Calgary Charter on Health Literacy scale
From the beginning, HLM has been an active member of an international community of health literacy scholars, practitioners, and thought leaders. Our latest contribution includes 2 chapters in the new International Handbook of Health Literacy: Research, Practice and Policy across the Life-Span
