Health Literacy First

Health Literacy First, originally an audiovisual and multilingual presentation, was funded by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services.

Its primary purpose: to lead target groups--native speakers of English who have reading/writing challenges and early ELL (English Language Learning) students or candidates--to useful consumer-health information.

However, the general public--Delaware Countians in particular--will find a variety of useful health tips and resources in the links shown below.
