Overview:

Health educators and providers who specialize in patient education, adolescent health, or even young adult health challenges may find that the current available materials in their field fall short of leaving lasting impressions, offering community empowerment and teaching the ability to markedly improve personal health decision-making. As is often the case, youth and young adults may take their cue from trends on social media, and rely heavily on unvetted "health" information  favored by algorithms that have no grounding in health equity. What if we could turn the tables and allow those with lived experiences tell their stories in a curated forum with specific health aims for metacognitive outcomes? This community-based method for exploring health promotion is a tried and trusted method for generating compelling, transformative, learning as well as an arsenal of promotional materials and health messaging for practitioners, providers, and program planners.

Learning Objectives:

Learn how to organize a remote or in-person Photovoice Project with  specified aims for tackling a pertinent mental or behavioral health challenge.

Gather testimonials for strengths-based lived experiences, and structure the findings for presentation with investigator-participant presenters

Pilot a classroom for sharing de-identified testimonials and HIPPA compliant photographic images with system stakeholders (health care clients, health care providers, community health practitioners).
