Health Literacy

En Familia

En Familia is an intergenerational health literacy and health education program for Latino families. En Familia teaches health literacy skills, including the ability to find, use, and understand health care services and information. Family members participate in En Familia together to support each other in applying new knowledge and skills to manage their health. En Familia is bilingual Spanish/English and uses video to engage participants, illustrate common challenges, and demonstrate new skills.

En Familia trains families across five two-hour sessions:

  • Session 1: Plan Ahead
  • Session 2: Make a Medical Visit Appointment
  • Session 3: Prepare for the Medical Visit
  • Session 4: At the Medical Visit
  • Session 5: Follow Up
