U.S. Surgeon General & Understanding Medical Care

Dr. Richard Carmona, a past U.S. Surgeon General, adopted Health Literacy as one of his primary interests. “As a former nurse, trauma surgeon, and public health director [I realized] there was a wall between us and the people we were trying to serve. Health care professionals do not recognize that patients do not understand the health information we are trying to communicate. We must close the gap between what health care professionals know and what the rest of America understands.”
