Join us for Health Literacy Series: Becoming an Empowered Patient taking place on Tuesday, March 29 at 1 PM in Community Conference Center.

Gain greater control over your decisions and actions by joining Nancy J. Niles, Ph.D., of Rollins College, in empowering you to act on your health. In this program, Dr. Niles will help you increase your health literacy, giving you the necessary tools to have a collaborative relationship with your doctor. You’ll learn how to advocate on your own behalf and teach others how to honor your preferences, values, cultural traditions, and socioeconomic conditions when speaking about your health concerns. Patients who are empowered are more likely to follow a care plan that better suits their needs. High health literacy can help each of us achieve one of our biggest goals: to thrive while growing older. By being equipped with the necessary information, you can make strategic decisions and remain in full control of your future.
