We want to thank Walmart for their donation in June 2019 in support of our HEAL Program® class. This allowed us to purchase eight Johnson & Johnson First Aid Kits and seven Walmart gift cards for learners taking the HEAL Program®.
The HEAL Program® is a nationally award winning program developed by Literacy for Life at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA. It is based on the idea that low health literacy and poor health go together. The Program is designed to help people feel more confident dealing with our healthcare system and teaching ways they can improve their health. The Program is a series of 8 classes covering health issues like: Healthy eating and nutrition, Medicine – prescriptions & OTCs and how to read the labels, Emergencies – how to deal with them, Appointments – how to prepare for them, Talking to your doctor and what information to be sure you go home with, and Lifestyle changes to stay healthy.
