AZ is always seeking to improve our processes and to optimize value along our pipeline. This accomplishment is an excellent example of what can be accomplished when we pair our high grade internal capabilities with the strengths of 1 of our important alliance companions in the U.S. In 2005, M.

Standardized mental and physical health test ratings were determined. The average age of participants was 71 years. Approximately one third of those surveyed had marginal or inadequate health literacy. Individuals with lower health literacy were much more likely to haven’t smoked and to abstain from alcohol than people with adequate wellness literacy, the researchers statement.
