What we do
Our programs put health literacy into action. By building and operating programs that embrace health literacy best practices, we are able to increase understanding of health information in new and exciting areas, such as kidney transplant education, accessible science information, and community-based wellness.
Work we're proud of
With the spread of COVID-19, people are using the internet for just about everything - partying with friends, meetings for work, and finding health information. In collaboration with the St. Louis Regional Health Commission, we developed a collection of videos to help people stay safe, understand what they should do if they get sick, and where to find local resources.
Health Insurance Literacy Project
Health insurance is confusing and people often don't have the information they need to get, keep, and use insurance. We applied health literacy strategies to health insurance print materials, social media messages, and videos to help consumers make informed decisions and connect with help when they need it.
Our transplant initiatives were developed in collaboration with Dr. Amy Waterman, one of the nation’s leading experts in transplant education, and fully follow evidence-based health literate best practices. Our educational materials help kidney patients learn about their disease and treatment options. In addition, they teach health care providers how to educate their patients about living donor transplants as an option towards longer, healthier lives.
