Behavioral change approaches and digital health literacy
Health care is centered on dignity, and access to health (care) and well-being is a fundamental right.
“What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness. Those moments when another human being was there, in front of me, suffering, and I responded . . . sensibly. Reservedly. Mildly. Or, to look at it from the other end of the telescope: Who, in your life, do you remember most fondly, with the most undeniable feelings of warmth?” - George Saunders
