These educational materials aim to prepare nursing students to deliver culturally sensitive care by increasing awareness of social determinants of health and health literacy. 

1. Evaluating patient/family/community level factors related to health equity and health literacy.
2. Developing effective communication strategies and nursing interventions that address low health literacy.
