CLGer Receives Award at University of New Mexico Hospitals

Audrey Riffenburgh, Senior Health Literacy Specialist at UNM Hospitals, was honored with the 2014 Distinguished Healthcare Team Member award in the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion where the health literacy initiative Audrey leads is based.

Audrey’s health literacy work focuses on guiding UNM Hospitals toward becoming a more health literate organization. The organization recently made a leap toward that goal when the leadership approved a position against testing patients’ health literacy (or functional literacy) skills in a clinical setting.
