EveryLibrary Institute Issues Report on Health Literacy
INFOdocket’s Gary Price shared news from the EveryLibrary Institute, which states, “Low health literacy levels account for hundreds of billions of dollars spent each year on health care that would otherwise be unnecessary, with recent estimates settling around $236 billion. … In order to fund and utilize libraries and librarians in realizing health literacy goals, new policies must be created. That is why EveryLibrary Institute has commissioned a report on the effects of Low Health Literacy.”
The report “review[s] current issues with understanding and delivering health literacy services and make[s] recommendations for changes to systems for better outcomes.”
