This project examined health literacy efforts among adult basic education providers in Central Texas. A survey was conducted with all adult literacy providers in Central Texas (N=58). Most programs provide health-related information. Literacy programs see needs for helping students communicate with doctors, filling out insurance paperwork, and knowing where to go for treatment. Programs express interest in lessons designed to improve health literacy and networking workshops to collaborate with healthcare providers. Literacy providers recognize the health literacy needs of their students but do not always have the resources or capacity to improve their programs.
