This morning, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida renewed their commitment to health literacy by presenting the Florida Literacy Coalition with a check for $120,000. These funds are part of a 3-year grant initiative from BCBSFL.
These funds will be used in the upcoming grant year to fund 15 health literacy programs throughout Florida. Since the partnership between BCBSFL and FLC began in 2009, health literacy programs have been implemented to improve communication skills for adult learners in ESOL and family literacy programs across the state.
