Low literacy and limited English proficiency are barriers to health and healthcare for many adults. This Health Information Toolkit is designed to provide plain language health education materials created using health literacy guidelines. Created for 12 different language groups, the materials are culturally and linguistically responsive as well. There is information on general health, women’s health, patient/provider communication, and medications. You can access the health education materials either by topic or by language. Just click on your choice in the menu at the top of this page.
