Course description

Our health, and the health of our families and friends, is one of the most important things in our life. Our health impacts every other part of our life. Health literacy is about understanding and using health information so that we can take care of and make decisions about our health. By taking charge of our health, we can make our life easier and better. We can also improve the lives of those we care about.

The Take Charge of Your Health course is part of the ABC Health Matters program which helps you increase your comfort and confidence with managing your health. Through this course, you will learn how to better access health care and talk about your health and your family’s health.

This course is funded in part by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. ABC Health Matters was developed with support from AbbVie Canada. To learn more about the program, please visit the ABC Health Matters website.
