The goal of my program is to improve health literacy in our community and increase the access to high-quality healthcare. For this goal, I’ll focus on two goals: 1) Increased knowledge of medical terms and resources. 2) Encourage individuals to ask for information or seek it out when they need it.
In order to achieve these goals, I will be hosting health-related workshops with healthcare professionals in the local area, supplying public libraries with information about various topics related to health, and producing a series online videos that explain medical terminology using simple terms. We can overcome the obstacles associated with low health literacy by empowering people from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds and providing them with resources to help manage their condition.
