Health Literacy Missouri works to improve the health of Missourians by closing the gap between patient skills and the demands of the health care system. We do this by:
- Training doctors and other health professionals to communicate better with patients
- Assessing health systems and applying targeted health literacy best practices designed to improve health outcomes
- Providing plain language editing and document creation
We are a non-profit center headquartered in St. Louis’ Central West End with partners across the state.
HLM was established and funded by the Missouri Foundation for Health.
