Hi Medlibbers,

The residents at our pediatric hospital are working on a project to create easy-to-read patient handouts for an extremely low literate population.  They would like to create handouts on about the 4th grade reading level for the most common health topics.  Are there any pediatric hospitals willing to share their patient handouts? The residents are trying to get an idea of what the handouts should look like.  Any help is much appreciated.
