"This paper outlines JHA’s critical health literacy model. First, we connect the goals of the WHO Commission on the SDOH and the goals of WHO health promotion experts by arguing that they are both reliant on achieving critical health literacy. Then we present our critical health literacy pedagogical framework, providing examples of activities and actions our course participants have conducted. We conclude with a brief discussion of our evaluation process."

"In this report we employ econometric analysis to estimate the direct medical costs and indirect costs to the economy of health inequalities. By doing so, we estimate the potential fi nancial benefi t that would accrue to the economy if every racial/ethnic group in the United States had similar health outcomes."
