The panelists distinguish between functional health literacy, public health literacy and the different levels of health literacy people have. They also talk about how communities can address health literacy problems. They discuss one outreach program in Western Kentucky in particular that has made health literacy a priority. This effort includes helping community leaders understand that a healthy community is attractive to businesses.
