Health Literacy San Diego is led by the
Community Health Improvement Partners (CHIP)
and San Diego Council on Literacy (SDCOL).
We would like to thank our generous sponsors for funding this
project and our taskforce members for their guidance and hard
work. Specifically, funding for the report, "When Words Get
in the Way: A Collaborative Plan to Address Health Literacy in San
Diego County (publications)," was provided by Kaiser
Permanente. Implementation of report recommendations is
currently supported by the Archstone
Foundation, Kaiser Permanente, Sharp
Health Plan and Fox Foundation.

San Diego Council on Literacy
Established in 1986, the San Diego Council on
Literacy (SDCOL) works to establish and coordinate
partnerships with institutions and individuals to better utilize
community resources, assist in the formation and growth of literacy
programs, increase awareness and access to literacy services, and
serve as the voice of literacy at the local, state, and national
levels. The San Diego Council on Literacy improves quality of life
by providing services and resources that enhance the basic reading,
writing, and math skills of those at the lowest levels of literacy.
