dc.descriptionWhite paper written by the 2020-2021 President's Fellows investigating health literacy as a social determinant of health and including recommendations focusing on the major themes of health literacy: Education, Research, Community Engagement and Collaborationen_US
dc.description.abstractPromoting social justice and health is an important focus of the 2017-2021 strategic plan for the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB, 2018). From this perspective, UMB’s commitment to these values was clear when it tasked a team of nine students, representing the seven professional schools at UMB and the University of Maryland at College Park (UMCP), with examining health literacy as a social determinant of health. The appointed students developed a list of recommendations for UMB to address health literacy as a social determinant of health and use an empathetic, interprofessional approach to meet the campus’ and surrounding communities’ health literacy needs. The mission of this paper is to establish health literacy as an important public health issue at UMB, UMCP, and in local communities.en_US
