Get help speaking with your provider

Img2-speaking-to-provider-v2.jpg
Whether you are a person who is hard of hearing or English isn’t your first language, it can be hard to understand what your provider is saying. But help is just a click away. And it’s free to you! Oregon Health Authority offers health care interpreters who can translate for you. Click here to find an interpreter. 

Choose one who knows sign language or can translate into your preferred language. You can select the language you want from the drop-down menu. You can choose from either a qualified or certified interpreter. Qualified interpreters must have at least 15 hours of interpreting experience. Certified interpreters have 30 or more hours of experience and must have passed a certification exam. Whichever option you choose, health care interpreters can help you make the most of your provider visits.

July is UV Awareness Month

As the weather warms up, you may find yourself spending more time outside. To protect you and your family from the elements, sunglasses are a must! 

You’re exposed to more eye health risks than you may realize. UV rays are present year-round, yet many aren’t wearing sunglasses regularly. 

Sun damage can be harmful to your eye health and can put you at risk for a corneal sunburn, redness and irritation, and long-term effects like age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, blindness, and even eyelid skin cancer. Learn more

Eat healthier by filling your plate with bright-colored foods

Did you know that food with vibrant colors is a sign of a healthy meal?iStock-1203599952.jpgThat’s because pigments in fruits and vegetables create bright natural colors that represent a variety of protective compounds such as cancer-fighting nutrients and immune-boosting power. Before you go shopping, check out MyPlate’s meal tips to help you choose healthy, colorful foods for you and your family.
