Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities, Maryland Department of Health and the Herschel S. Horowitz Center for Health Literacy, University of Maryland College Park recently published a health literacy and cultural competency teaching resources for educators of health professionals. This is an important document because it supports a new conceptual framework that looks to integrate cultural competency and health literacy training of health professionals. CLG member Sabrina Kurtz-Rossi is using this dual pedagogy in a new course she is teaching in spring 2014 at Johns Hopkins University.
