Health Education

 

Health education takes topics such as medical conditions and healthy living behaviors and makes them easier to understand. Mercy Care’s Health Promotion and Education Program empowers patients to improve wellness and prevent chronic disease through Community Classes, Group Classes and Individual Appointments.

Bilingual Mercy Care health educators offer culturally and linguistically appropriate Health Promotion and Education Programs in English and Spanish at clinic sites and community locations. Many resources are free to patients and the community.
