NEW YORK, July 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of launching their online COVID-19 Resource Center, Jumo Health, the global provider of age appropriate health care resources, has donated a supply of its COVID-19 related resources to hundreds of hospitals whose service areas cover nearly 159 million people. This service has been provided at no cost to the hospitals in partnership with The Hibbert Group.
Using the most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), Jumo Health's team of medical researchers, writers, and animators created culturally sensitive print and digital resources to provide information on this specific coronavirus, how to protect yourself and the community to stop the spread, and more.
"We are honored to assist Jumo Health in their efforts to educate people on COVID-19 and other chronic illnesses. We join them in expressing our gratitude to the frontline workers dedicated to fighting this unprecedented pandemic," said Tim Moonan, CEO of The Hibbert Group.
Raising Health Literacy to Alleviate Fear of the Unknown
Nearly 90% of the population is health illiterate which includes not having access to information that can promote better health outcomes. Building on its commitment to provide patient friendly, evidence based information that addresses the fundamental issues of health literacy - including age, education attainment, and cultural bias - Jumo Health published a suite of highly visual COVID-19 resources that enable patients and caregivers to make informed decisions and act upon physicians' instructions.
"The unfortunate reality is that the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated a chronic issue that has plagued the US and world countries for decades and this disparity in health literacy has proven to cripple communities and stifle economies. Thanks to our friends at The Hibbert Group, we are able to work together to ensure access to education at the point of care is available to allow frontline workers to focus on what they do best - administering care," shared Kevin Aniskovich, Jumo Health President and CEO.
