In this session held on May 25 in San Diego, Dr. Tamara Cadet, Associate Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, joined Dr. Ashok Roy, Chief Medical Officer at Caravan Health, part of Signify Health, to present on the increasingly critical topic of health literacy. They discuss how to make appropriate care decisions regarding cancer screenings, and the ways providers can adopt strategies for communicating effectively with elderly patients to reduce health disparities. 

Dr. Cadet presents the dire statistics that only 12% of the U.S. adult population has the highest proficiency level of health literacy. This increases to 39% when adults aged 75 and older are included in the demographic. The majority of American adults do not have proficient health literacy to effectively manage their health. 

Learning objectives:
• Understand the effects of age-related changes on health literacy levels in older adults. 
• Develop strategies for communicating effectively with patients to reduce health disparities. 
• Support a shared decision-making approach to care plans that respects patients’ preferences and aligns with their goals.
