New Routes to Community Health
Our Stories, Our Health was awarded $225,000 by New Routes to Community Health, a program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Benton Foundation designed to improve the health of immigrants in the United States through media created by immigrants. Here in Philadelphia, Our Stories, Our Health is a collaborative media health initiative aiming to engage immigrant Laotian and Vietnamese seniors in the process of identifying and describing health needs through personal storytelling, video production, and discussion about health in the Southeast Asian community.
WHYY Learning Lab Video
Our Stories, Our Health is a project that has been teaching Vietnamese and Laotian elders to shoot video interviews about health topics they identified as important to their communities. The footage will be used in health workshops throughout the Southeast Asian community in the Philadelphia area. The Learning Lab has provided the video training, which is the focus of this behind-the-scenes look at the project.
