Understanding how we all read and recall
 health information is just as important
 as the information itself

 absorb and recall new health messages 
 - and change our behaviour

FUNCTIONAL HEALTH LITERACY

The ability to understand information sufficiently enough to take appropriate decisions about your own health

DIGITAL HEALTH LITERACY

The difference between how we read and recall  health information from a digital  versus a printed medium
