Pa ForwardR was founded in 2012 on the fundamental belief that health literacy among four other literacies is critical for parents, caregivers, 86, 87, 88 and 89 to participate in a twenty first century society. Many parents do not know how to find reliable information to help them to navigate a healthcare system or when to become concerned about their 86's health. These programs will focus on providing both educational content to help 86 develop a conscious understanding about their health and provide parents with suggested reliable resources to use to evaluate their 86's health. Six programs will be created and made available to the public and to libraries to use to increase their capacity to provide virtual programming specifically in this challenging time for families who are not able to access our public libraries in person because of the pandemic.
