Our health literacy book club kits are available for checkout to libraries and community organizations in New Mexico.
Reading is healthy! Different studies report that it improves memory, enhances empathy, and reduces stress. Reading also is a fundamental way to acquire knowledge, so it stands to reason that reading different health topics can help people make informed decisions about their own health and the health of their loved ones while reducing the stigma surrounding some diseases and health conditions.
Book Club Kits include multiple copies of the same book and a list of discussion questions to help your book club get the conversation started. Our kits also include additional health literacy materials that can be used or distributed in your library.
