Written and digital materials are a fundamental component of engaging the community in health education programming. Unfortunately, many adults lack the skills they need to understand and use these materials, many of which do not incorporate common health literacy and plain language best practices. The UAMS Center for Health Literacy has a suite of written and digital materials to engage patients and community members to better care for themselves and improve health literacy skills. These resources were designed to empower individuals to communicate more effectively with providers and to engage in better self-care.
Jen Gan, MBA, CRS and Katie Leath, MPH, MA from University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) will highlight their suite of community engagement resources and provide an overview of their development process including field testing and plain language best practices.
