Melissa Davey, AHI’s Community Engagement Coordinator (second from right), recently completed a one-week fellowship course at Tufts University School of Medicine’s Health Literacy Leadership Institute in Boston. The educational program supports professionals engaged in health literacy work to transform public health and health care delivery through peer learning and the sharing of best practice. Students learned principles to improve patient-provider communication and health care quality.
Davey, who earned a certificate for successfully completing the intensive course, serves as the lead of the AHI PPS Cultural Competency and Health Literacy (CCHL) initiative, providing training and supporting the work of CCHL champions at partner organizations seeking to enhance patient interactions
and simplify service access.
If your organization is interested in instituting culturally-competent and health-literate best practice, promoting health equity and reducing health disparities, contact Davey for assistance at [email protected], or 518.480.0111, ext. 312.
