Public health #publichealth & #healthlit health literacy – share your experience and perspective!

If you are employed at a state, tribal, local, or territorial public health department or agency, you can play an important role in helping to further advance the role of health literacy in addressing public health issues.

This effort will help inform a background paper being prepared for the Institute of Medicine’s Roundtable on Health Literacy.

Please take just a few minutes of your time and go to: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YVSVCFP - there, you will find a brief set of questions that will help us better understand how public health agencies are working to address health literacy.

Please also feel free to forward this invitation to your professional network of individuals who are employed at state, tribal, local or territorial public health agencies in the United States.

Your assistance is critically important!

Thank you!

Do you work at a state, tribal, local or territorial public health agency in the United States?

If your answer to that question is yes, we need your assistance.

We are currently investigating the role of health literacy in state, tribal, local, or territorial public health agencies. Currently, we are limiting this effort to U.S. based public health organizations only.

If you are employed at a state, tribal, local, or territorial public health department or agency that fits that description, you can play an important role in helping to further advance health literacy.

Not the best news one would want to read....
According to a new study sponsored by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, we only have a few decades left before everything we know and hold dear collapses.

The apartment complex does not have a real name to the building. I have lived here for 8 months and can honestly say this is a slum. There is not a maintenance person on site as he and his daughter moved out because of the landlord. The snow in the back parking lot was never completely removed and became a sheet of ice until March. There is black mold around the window frames and sliding glass door of all the apartments. My hot water heater went out at Christmas and after multiple text messages and phone calls the landlord *finally* allowed a HVAC repairman to fix the 25 year old water heater. As you can see from the pictures, the sliding glass door froze and ice formed on my front door. I advise people not to rent here as I am planning to move as soon as possible!
