Using Digital Stories As Health Education Tools
Presenter: Patricia Horton
How do we motivate our community and patients to take action in their health? Using the power of story, we can engage the community and our patients into taking an active role in learning about various health issues through inspiration, insight, and critical reflection. This awareness often results in behavior change towards preventing health problems and has the potential of helping health centers improve clinical performance.
This webinar will guide participants on the content of digital stories as educational resources and provide strategies for utilizing this media resource in their community and with their patient population. We will view examples of digital stories and discuss ways in which they can be used in health centers. Click here to register.
