Plain Language Training

Nutrition Education

This training is designed to help those communicating written health messages to organize ideas, use a clear writing style, and become effective communicators.

Additional resources for developing health messages and materials appropriate and culturally relevant for your audience include:

  • Health Literacy and Plain Language - a collection page of resources and tools to help staff improve health literacy among participants and use plain language in their nutrition and health education messages.
  • Simply Put - a guide for creating easy-to-understand materials that provides steps with detailed information and tips for developing health communication materials that are evidence-based and user-friendly.
  • Clear & Simple - a resource that outlines the process for developing materials for people with limited-literacy skills; it expands on the the initial steps identified in Simply Put.
