Into the looking glass: A collective self-assessment of health literacy

9 April, 2022

Dear friend ....

I am hoping to take a quick snapshot of health literacy around the world - and I need your help to accomplish this task.

Below is a link to 10 short and easy-to-answer questions - a very short survey - on SurveyMonkey. Responding shouldn't take more than a few minutes of your time but in the aggregate I believe will produce an actionable and meaningful understanding.

These questions are intended for people/organizations actively working on health literacy issues in communities or clinics or hospitals or states and nations and/or actively conducting health literacy research with people in any context.

I will be in your debt if you could help me by doing just two things that should not take up your time.

1. Respond to the questions - anonymously - yourself.

2. Share this email and the link with your entire network of health literacy professionals.

Here is the link:

If you have any questions or concerns about this effort, please contact me directly.

Best wishes as always,
