From Helen Osborne & Institute for Healthcare Advancement: "Health Literacy Month is a time for organizations and individuals to promote the importance of understandable health information. This annual, worldwide, awareness-raising event has been going strong ever since Helen Osborne founded it in 1999...The theme for Health Literacy Month 2017 is "Be a Health Literacy Hero." It's about taking action and finding ways to improve health communication."
