Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I was trained by the AMA as a health literacy trainer, and have integrated health literacy into Medical School Training, been the PI on multiple grants that use community based approaches to develop and evaluate materials/websites for lower literacy populations, and currently, through state funding, train regional hospital staff in health literacy. I have developed and received awards for low literacy photonovels on breast health and diabetes for African Americans and the Asian community.
