Health Literacy Review
Health literacy is the extent to which a person can receive, process, and understand health information to improve communication with their doctors and equip them to advocate for their own well-being. To evaluate DB-I patient materials, we have embarked on content review in conjunction with a health literacy expert. This will be a multi-month project, but we wanted to share some early updates to DB-I popular content:
- Dense Breasts: 5 Facts You Should Know
- New Question and Answer #18, “I have dense breasts and cancer might be missed on my mammogram. What else can I do?” which links to more extensive information on the same topic in Question and Answer #25, “What are other breast screening tests after my mammogram?”.
National Physicians Week:
Today begins National Physicians week in the U.S. We recognize and thank DB-I’s stellar team of medical advisors and educators! Look for social media posts this week.
