Health Literacy

The Northeast Nebraska Public Health Department believes that health literacy is an important skill to have.

Health literacy is the way a person finds, understands, and uses basic health facts, news, and services to make choices that will help the person and their family be healthier.

Health Literacy also:

  • Works to make forms and brochures simple and easy to read.
  • Helps you more easily understand how to take care of your health.
  • Helps you more easily understand how to take care of your health.
  • Gives health facts and tips in language that the reader speaks rather than using medical jargon.
