- Only 10 percent of adults have the knowledge and skills needed to understand important information about their health. (NECS, 2003)
- Our access to health services and informed health decision-making are dependent on this information. So what about the other 90 percent?
- More than 3 out of 4 adults have looked for health or medical information (NCI HINTS, 2007.)
- 8 in 10 Internet users have searched for health information online. (Pew Internet, 2011.)
Imagine if all of these searches resulted in clear, actionable information – information that could be used in everyday life. We all want – and deserve – plain language information about our health!
