Health Literacy Initiative

  • Nicholas Adamo and Gazi Rashid

The topic was "Getting to Know Your Health". The first session emphasized the importance of asking your doctor questions and being prepared before the office visit. There was a great discussion around medication.

This is a new initiative by Samaritan Ministry, and is part of a 6 part series focusing on Health Literacy.  The future topics are; Hepatitis C, HIV/AIDS, Nutrition, Heart Health, Diabetes.
