Jacqueline's Keynote address was amazing!She spoke not only of literacy...40% of Manitobans do not have even a Level 3 benchmark [Grade 12].
But she also spoke of Health Literacy--the lack of which leaves people vulnerable in a healthcare setting; unable to read and comprehend medical forms and consent. To say nothing of legal literacy....
The statistics are amazing...if you know someone in that 40%...
