NCFH, with support from Consumer Reports Best Buy Drugs (CRBBD), has produced a collection of health education resources for health centers, including digital stories, accompanying health briefs, and consumer factsheets. Covering a range of topics including Asthma, High Blood Pressure, and Diabetes (with more topics coming soon), these resources are free to use and easily accessible.
Digital Stories & Accompanying Briefs
All digital stories are about five minutes long and are a great way to promote health information and offer support to patients that have been recently diagnosed with particular health issues. Each story highlights one person's experience in managing their diagnosis, provides health awareness, and engages community members in taking charge of their health. The digital stories are bilingual, narrated in Spanish with English subtitles.
The accompanying health briefs are easy to follow tips on how to manage diagnoses addressed in the digital stories. These are great to print for clinicians to use as handouts for newly diagnosed patients, for health educators to use in the community, and to have in your clinic as information reference tools.
