Sue Graham supports Literacy Volunteers

Hi, my name is Sue Graham and I support Literacy Volunteers because individuals with poor reading skills are less likely to participate in health screening and preventative medicine and more likely to have poor health outcomes.

I'm concerned about all the patients' whose health suffers because they can't understand the words we use in health care to describe illnesses, procedures, and treatments. For example, being able to read and understand the instructions on a prescription label can mean the difference between life and death.

One of every 5 people in the United States is unable to read and write. In Syracuse, 1 in every 4 people is functionally illiterate.

As Upstate employees, we have many blessings. The Community Giving Campaign gives us the opportunity to help our less fortunate neighbors in their time of need. Please join me in supporting the charity of your choice through the Community Giving Campaign.
