Well-being & Health Literacy
Why Should I Care?

Lynn Wareing

Description: Our health and well-being is impacted not only by our ability and confidence to interact with health professionals, the health care system and the stacks of health information we receive; but also by our ability and confidence to interact with our community.  The level of one’s health literacy affects these interactions and ultimately our over all well-being.  Approximately 50% of adult Canadians have low health literacy skills and are often those who are most vulnerable among us.  Creating safe and inclusive spaces throughout our community helps to bolster the well-being for those we serve.

Lynn Wareing has been an oncology and palliative care nurse for over 30 years. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from McMaster University and a Masters in Advanced Practice Nursing from Western University with specialities in both oncology and palliative care. She has practiced across the cancer continuum in many capacities while working with many vulnerable populations.  She has become passionate about the impacts of socio-economic status on health and is an advocate for those who experience disparities as a result. Lynn is currently the Manager for the National Cancer Information Service at the Canadian Cancer Society where she continues her advocacy work.
