Health Literacy, Self-Care & Caregiving

AgeLab, in partnership with Healthways, is examining the impact of health literacy on older adult self-care and caregiving. Dimensions to be explored include the impact of culture, income, education as well as health numeracy. Key objectives will be to identify engagement strategies producing better health outcomes for rural and disadvantaged populations managing chronic disease or caring for a family member.
