GAHL to Join Literacy Day at the Capitol

On Tuesday, February 17, 2015, members of the Georgia Alliance for Health Literacy (GAHL) will meet with Georgia’s legislators to talk about elevating health literacy in our state. We know that improving health literacy will also improve the health of all Georgians and our economy. And we’ll be reinforcing some important points:

  • Improve understanding so citizens access preventive services & stay well
  • Provide patient education to help manage chronic conditions
  • Help prevent adverse medical events by improving patient-provider communications
  • Reduce excess hospitalizations & readmissions with better self-care
  • Contain the impact of illness and injury on Georgia’s economy
