Understanding the Health Literacy of America Results of the National Assessment of Adult Literacy

We’ve been stuck at an average 5-6th grade literacy level for 40+ years now in America. Medical schools are still teaching students to speak to this level to our patients. We cannot remain relevant and competitive on the planet remaining at this literacy level. Increasingly, our domestic decision-making will reflect this educational deficit. As you all are aware, the main objective of this blog is to promote improved health care literacy in the Brazos Valley. I consider all who follow as a allies in this mission. I thank you. Let’s serve the Brazos Valley together.
