Dr. Rudd's models for assessing the literacy environment of health centers and hospitals are being adopted here in the US and abroad. Her collective body of work is evident of a deep and abiding commitment to providing low literacy populations with the knowledge and skills needed to better navigate the health care system.

"The thought-leadership and research efforts of this year's Health Literacy Award recipients have advanced the field in ways that have significant and meaningful impact," said Pinakiewicz, "and we are honored to recognize their many achievements."

The Pfizer Health Literacy in Advancing Patient Safety Award was conferred to Dr. Wolf and Dr. Rudd at the 2009 NPSF Patient Safety Congress in Washington, DC, and recipients shared a $15,000 one-time grant from Pfizer in recognition of their work.
