October Observances

Two important observances this month.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Be sure you check out Rachael Chatoor's "Standing All the Way" on her Blog.

October is also Health Literacy Month. All month long there are events going on around the world to bring attention to the importance of and advocate for understandable health information. Find out how important clear health information is to individuals and learn what people and organizations are doing to ensure that people get the kind of healthcare and health communications they need here.

Effective health communication is a two-way process.


  1. Important point today, Grandpa. Thanks

    Aloha, Friend!

    Comfort Spiral

  2. Good to see someone pointing out the weightier observances.

  3. This is indeed some very important issues. I'm very lucky to have a great doctor who explains everything in plain English.

    You can steal/take anything off my site you want to. I would be honored.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  4. Interesting to note that in India, the greatest health problems exist in those places where literacy is the lowest....

  5. Braja makes a very interesting observation... it is true.. with literacy and education, we start the war against all ills that plague human society..
