Take the Health Literacy Maryland 2019 Programming Survey

Your voice counts! The UMD Horowitz Center for Health Literacy and the Health Literacy Maryland Steering Committee want to know what you’d like to see happen with Health Literacy Maryland in 2019. This survey should take no longer than 10 minutes and will play a large role in planning efforts for the year.

If you know of an individual or organization in Maryland interested in health literacy, please share this survey with them: go.umd.edu/HLM2019ProgramSurvey

Thanks in advance for your time!

What is Health Literacy Maryland (HLM)?

HLM is a statewide and free membership coalition that brings together people and organizations to work on improving health literacy. Depending on the circumstances, anyone can experience low health literacy, which means they have trouble navigating health systems, communicating health needs, or understanding and using health information from health professionals, media, government agencies, and other sources. HLM works with any interested organization, such as healthcare providers, government agencies, and community-based organizations, to improve access to and use of good health information and offer opportunities to use such information to improve health outcomes.

In April 2018, the Horowitz Center for Health Literacy hosted a Health Literacy Huddle, bringing together organizations interested in being a part of a newly-reinstated statewide health literacy coalition. If you or your organization is interested, please email us at healthliteracy@umd.edu so we can follow up with you. If you are interested in keeping up with coalition updates, join our mailing list!
