Health Literacy Connections (formerly Plain Language Works)

Get connected to expert health literacy coaching, training, consulting, and resources in organizational health literacy. If you’re in healthcare, public health, insurance, research, or a government agency, we can help your organization become more “health literate.” We can also help your organization ensure your consumer and patient-facing information is reader-friendly and in plain language. Check with us for a free document review. We can show you whether your information is really in plain language.

What makes us stand out? We provide structured, on-going training and coaching which are more effective than random information from the internet or a smattering of learnings at a conference once a year. We use live, on-line video in groups and individually—saving you out-of-office time and travel costs. We also deliver in-person training on site.

Our clients, present and past, include dozens of healthcare organizations and systems across the U.S., public health departments, Institute for Healthcare Advancement (we edited several books in the What to Do series), Rand, National Cancer Institute, Pfizer, universities, and courts.
