The first and foremost goal of Henderson-Hughes Health Partners (H3P) is to provide knowledge that will lead to healthy lives. We will achieve this through our created public health programs and distributing health and safety information that is accurate and accessible for the community. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, there is a link between having low health literacy and frequent use of emergency room and inpatient care. The lower the health literacy knowledge people have, people are less likely to get a flu shot, understand medication labels or go without having important tests such as mammograms.
Created in 2012, Henderson-Hughes Health Partners (H3P) is a public health advocacy, health consulting and health literacy nonprofit organization with the goal to breakdown barriers to healthcare. Throughout the years H3P has kept their goal front and center by doing community outreaches such as health fairs, back to school supply giveaways and period pouch distributions.
