Low reading, math, and other adult basic skills represent a principal barrier to recruitment and success of healthcare education programs. To address this issue, Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) programs should provide innovative approaches to adult basic skills education so that lower-skilled individuals can enroll in the program and go on to enter and complete post-secondary training.
