Healthdove Inc. is seeking this funding to expand their health information resources with the objective of increasing health literacy and reducing health disparities. The objective is to increase health literacy by distributing health information through the development of a newsletter, the implementation of health talk radio app and a series of health presentations/screenings in the community. Individuals will be able to use the information to make informed decisions about their health. Our program is based on the evidence that there is no health education program in the Virgin Islands that offer solely health information and health newsletter to enable individuals to make decisions concerning their health. Research has shown that there is a relationship between low health literacy and health disparity. Individuals need to understand health information to take better care of themselves.
