In a year of extraordinary service, Say Ah! was able to conduct more than 25 free health literacy workshops thanks to donations from our supporters. These workshops provided hundreds of patients and caregivers with the much-needed skills to manage their health in today’s overwhelmingly complex health care system.
Other highlights include: training health care providers, community outreach workers and direct service professionals to identify and combat low health literacy; disseminating more than 5,000 of Say Ah!’s Tips for Talking with Your Doctorhealth cards; translating Say Ah!’s patient empowerment materials into Spanish, Haitian Creole and Russian; and presenting our work at health literacy conferences in New York and California.
Please help us build on this great work by making a year-end tax-deductible donation. Click here to donate, and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more ways to suport Say Ah! We appreciate your generosity and are deeply grateful for your support! Thank you!
Say Ah! Awarded Grant from NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn
Residents of Chelsea, Clinton, and the West Village are on track to become more health literate thanks to a grant awarded to Say Ah! by New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn to expand our programing in Council District 3.
“I am proud to support Say Ah!’s health literacy workshops for patients and caregivers in the 3rd Council District. Say Ah!’s work helping people gain the skills needed to manage their health is an important step in improving the wellness of the community.” – New York City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn
Building on last year’s work in District 3, Say Ah! will be leading lively workshops at area community centers, schools, and senior centers to help local residents learn the basic skils needed to get better, safer and more effective health care. These skills include: how to get the most out of a doctor’s visit, create and use a health history, understand studies, advocate for oneself or others in the health care system, and find reliable health information online.
Say Ah! is deeply grateful to the Speaker and her staff, the Department of Aging, and the people of District 3 for helping make these workshops happen.
