Parent Health Literacy Training, Abilene, KS

Parent Health Literacy Training 

Helping Families Use the Book “What To Do When Your Child Gets Sick”

This introduction to Parent Health Literacy will give you tips and tools for working with parents of young children. The various materials that have been developed will lend themselves to working with large and small groups of families as well as on a one-on-one basis.  The overall goals of this curriculum are empowerment of families and reduction in the number of unnecessary doctor and ER visits.

 In addition to providing an overview of the book What To Do When Your Child Gets Sick, this half-day training will focus on the skills necessary to working with low literacy parents.  Three (3) CEUs are available upon request for $15.00 through AHEC; a CEU registration form will be distributed at the session to those interested.

 This project is sponsored by Kansas Head Start Association with funding provided by the Kansas Health Foundation.
