Our Library

The Lab Library uses an ever growing number of real world examples to create our Lessons.

The lessons in The Library are organized by Health & Science Topics and by Language & Design Topics. A lesson on  childhood immunizations would likely be in the  “Prevention” stack of the Health & Science Topics.  A lesson about how to present nutritional information on a food label would be in the Language & Design Topics in the stack, “Using Numbers”.

Note: A topic can be found in a number of places.  So explore and get familiar with the Library.

Here are the current stacks in The Health Literacy Lab Library.
