North Carolina Program on Health Literacy

Health literacy is a major focus of research and practice at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH). In 2007, the Sheps Center for Health Services Research established the Program on Health Literacy to promote collaboration and dissemination across the UNC-CH campus and beyond. The Program on Health Literacy represents a collaborative effort of the UNC Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Education as well as community organizations and neighboring universities. The program’s primary goal is to serve as a clearinghouse for materials related to health literacy and patient education that can support research and clinical efforts in this field.
