Description
The Health Literacy Program for Minnesota Seniors (HeLP MN Seniors) is a joint project between the University of Minnesota’s Health Sciences Libraries and the Minnesota Health Literacy Partnership. Through the work of a multi-disciplinary team of health sciences librarians, health literacy specialists, public health professionals, and senior care specialists, HeLP MN Seniors has worked to create an evidence-based workshop program to build capacity and enhance efforts to improve the health literacy status of older adults. The workshops serve as a model health literacy program for seniors that is available for use by others interested in improving health outcomes through health literacy initiatives.
