A “Health Literacy Out Loud” podcast is available in which Janet Ohene-Frempong, MS, a plain language and cross-cultural communications consultant and Helen Osbourne discuss:

  • Communicating about food in a multicultural world and why this matters today.
  • Issues to consider such as whether foods are available, affordable, convenient, appropriate, and familiar.
  • Examples of respectful and inclusive ways to communicate about food and why doing so is not only appropriate but also can be deeply satisfying and gratifying.

Additional resources are also provided. Please see: https://nnlm.gov/bhic/pxpe.
