English for Health

LCMC’s English for Health Program, scheduled to begin in February 2015, is designed for adults who have low literacy and limited English proficiency. LCMC will be partnering with Community Clinics Inc. and MedStar Montgomery Medical Center to help participants access and use healthcare and maintain good health. The 12-week class series will be held 2 evenings a week at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center in Olney and at a Community Clinic in Montgomery County. Topics will include: health and wellness information, introduction to health insurance, making appointments, understanding prescriptions, talking to doctors, and filling out health forms.
