Talking about Pain Lesson Package and Videos

Hello colleagues, I am certain that most of us include health literacy in our ESL instruction. I wanted to share a health literacy resource developed by our colleagues in British Columbia Canada. You will find a useful collection of lesson materials as well as videos (with transcripts) focused on supporting learners from Beginning Literacy to Intermediate levels to communicate with health care providers.

Let us know your impressions of these instructional materials.

Health Literacy Missouri: Finding Your Way (funny) video

Dear Health Literacy Colleagues:

Health Literacy Missouri (HLM) has just released their latest health literacy video series. They are direct-to-consumer videos, written and produced by HLM (and starring HLM staff). The goal:  To introduce the general public to health literacy issues and useful strategies. In addition to providing #HealthcareHacks, the videos satirize popular internet trends, such as car-aoke, cooking tutorials, cat antics and much more.
