Grant Book Program Offered To Educational Organizations

Apply online for Institute for Healthcare Advancement program at www.iha4health.org/educationalgrants

LA HABRA, Calif., Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Institute for Healthcare Advancement (IHA) will now offer an Educational Grant Book Program that's designed for K-12 schools, adult literacy programs and other educational organizations that are looking to use the "What To Do For Health" book series as a teaching tool. IHA will subsidize the cost of the books for these organizations, allowing them to purchase books at a substantially reduced price.

Educational organizations interested in the Educational Grant Book Program can apply for the grant online at www.iha4health.org/educationalgrants.  The "What To Do For Health" book series has been distributed to more than 4 million readers. Each of the titles-- What To Do When Your Child Gets Sick , What To Do When You're Having A Baby , What To Do For Teen Health , What To Do For Senior Health , What To Do For Healthy Teeth , What To Do When Your Child Has Asthma and What To Do When Your Child Is Heavy--is written at a 3rd to 5th grade reading level. The books are organized in an easy-to-read, easy-to-use format that is liberally illustrated and does not use medical jargon.

"We're thrilled to be able to offer this grant to educational organizations that are planning parent or community programs to improve health and literacy. The feedback we most often hear from these groups is that they don't have the tools they need. Adult literacy instructors don't have age appropriate material at a lower reading level, school nurses have little to offer parents to help teach them ways they can take care of their sick child. This program gives the people on the front line access to the tools they need to make a difference," said IHA Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Hillery Pastovich.

IHA is a La Habra, California-based not-for-profit organization dedicated to empowering people to better health. It is nationally recognized for its efforts in health literacy and provides healthcare information through its various publishing efforts, the Internet, and its renowned local and national education programs. For more information regarding "What To Do For Health" book series, the IHA Health Literacy Conference or the Rewrite/Redesign Service for those in healthcare, please contact Michael Villaire, Chief Operating Officer, at 1-800-434-4633 ext. 202, email him at mvillaire@iha4health.org or visit www.iha4health.org.
