The Role of Literacy in Health and Health Care is Paramount
People, particularly chronic disease patients with substandard literacy have less health-related knowledge and inadequate control of illnesses, such as diabetes. Additionally, these patients are hospitalized more frequently than other patients and receive less preventive care.
According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, up to 40 percent of American adults have fair to poor literacy skills, which can make it difficult for them to function proficiently in the health care system.
In an effort to address this urgent issues, Ruby A. Neeson Diabetes Awareness Foundation is endeavoring to address the relationship between reading ability and health outcomes by establishing a partnership with The RadiKal Readers Clubhouse, a literacy initiative providing reading material and resources in poverty-stricken communities, globally.
What is Literacy? Literacy is defined as the ability to read and write, and competence or knowledge in a specified area.
Why is Literacy Linked to Diabetes? Inadequate literacy correlates with lower socioeconomic status and less formal education in specific racial and ethnic backgrounds. Communicating literacy-linked roadblock can help reduce disparities in health and health care outcomes. After careful research, we are confident that literacy is a key component for improving health in the United States.
