Important Health Care information & Health Literacy Links
OneWorld Strongly Recommends These Links to Our Visitors

 

  1. Health Literacy – we need to be informed; we need to pay attention and understand what our care providers say and do in delivering care.  We need to be proactive about our own health and well-being.
  2. Education – Being adequately prepared for a positive and productive life experience means being educated so that we can function and benefit maximally on every level of living.  We need a good education and effective work skills to compete in a global society.
  3. Civic Engagement – Being actively involved in our local community, in the affairs of our state, and in understanding what is going on in our country and how individual behaviors can affect ultimate outcomes.  Life in a democratic society demands individual participation.
