Produce resources and opportunities for people of Delaware County and elsewhere to learn more about health literacy and its impact in people's health, health care, and health outcomes.

Our Story

Mission

The mission of DCHLC is to raise awareness and address the challenges and improve health literacy in Delaware County.  We work together with patients and their advocates, healthcare providers and community members.  The coalition seeks to promote effective communication to help people best find, understand and act on health information.
