This October, celebrate Health Literacy Month with ePromos! Founded by Helen Osborne, president of Health Literacy Consulting, Health Literacy Month strives to highlight the importance of making understandable health information readily available to the public.
If you or a loved one has ever been sick, you know first-hand the importance of having easily accessible information that’s written simply so that anyone may understand. It’s equally important for both health care physicians and patients to learn how to communicate effectively with one another without getting bogged down in complex jargon. For this reason, it’s especially important to promote health literacy month!
ePromos has a myriad of promotional products that are perfect to raise awareness about Health Literacy Month. For example, try giving a promotional notepad – its small enough to be tucked into a pocket or purse, and it can help facilitate understanding between a physician and a patient if they can draw a diagram. You could give a custom book on healthcare to promote good habits. Similarly, hand sanitizer, pill boxes, and first aid kits are all great ways to keep health literacy at the forefront of people’s minds. These items can be used day after day creating a constant reminder.
