Our Mission

To advance healthcare education for communities with healthcare information barriers.

Health literacy skills are an important asset for maintaining or improving health.  Individuals with low health literacy skills are less healthy, less able to deal with chronic disease, have less knowledge of healthy practices, and may have difficulty reading and understanding information on medications or hospital forms.

Our Vision

To provide insular or healthcare illiterate communities with relevant, timely, accurate, evidence based education through a well-run and efficient nonprofit corporation that is responsive to its research and education objectives.
