Health Literacy Begins with You!
What exactly is Health Literacy? Health Literacy is defined by Healthy People 2010 Project as the degree to which people have the capacity to obtain, process and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions. It is not as easy as you may think. The simple truth is Americans struggle with health literacy regardless of age, race, ethnicity, income and education-level. This leads to poorer health outcomes, less adherence to medications, overuse of the emergency department and repeat hospitalizations.
Commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility
Gateway HealthSM's strong committment to corporate social responsibility is demonstrated by many programs and initiatives that are developed to improve the quality of life for our most vulnerable citizens, low income families and minorities. One example is Gateway's long-term commitment to improving health literacy by collaborating with organizations and individuals to craft lasting solutions.
