Health Literacy and Learning Program (HeLP)

The mission of the Health Literacy and Learning Program (HeLP) is to advance the study of limited health literacy and interventions that could improve one’s ability to obtain, process, and understand basic information needed to make appropriate health decisions. This is a groundbreaking effort; Northwestern is the first institution in the country to link the fields of medicine and education in order to improve how health systems educate patients and families on their health. In a reciprocal manner, HeLP envisions opportunities to better inform curriculum in schools and other informal learning settings on health promotion and empowerment.
