Health Literacy Study Circles+ Introduction

These study circles were developed in response to research findings that indicate that adults who have less than a high school education, are poor, are members of a minority group, and/or are immigrants face health problems. They have less access to health care, are more likely to die of a chronic disease, and are less likely to participate in preventive services than are people with more education and/or resources. The Health Literacy Study Circles+ series helps adult educators define the skills required to maintain health and manage illness and then design approaches to build these skills.
