Larry Combest Community Health and Wellness Centner
About this Hero
The Larry Combest Center is a Health Literacy Hero because it hosted an ice cream social for all the employees who are involved the care of patients being seen for primary care. While at the social the employees were provided a sheet of statistics, an example of health literacy testing using the food label, and were shown videos from AMA about health literacy. Over 75% of the staff was able to participate in the event and nearly all stated they learned something new and would keep this in mind when serving the patients at the center. Posted 2016.
