THE HARD TRUTH
40-44 million People
ARE FUNCTIONALLY HEALTH ILLITERATE!!!
Many have less than a fifth grade education but education and socioeconomic status isn't the only indicator. ANYONE can be HEALTH ILLITERATE!!
Many may be embarrassed but we are here to help! RNO can help!!
Health illiteracy leads to a decline in public health. If you don't know how to prevent a disease or infection, you have a greater likelihood of contracting the illness.
