Take Action: Telling Your Story

Take Action
Date & Time
Aug 4, 2015 3:00pm EDT

The journey to improving health is unique in every community. However, these unique journeys are part of a growing movement to build a Culture of Health throughout the country. This webinar will explore how communities can best share their stories and lessons learned to continue improving health locally and further strengthen a Culture of Health nationally.

We will explore a variety of questions:

  • How do you tell the story of your community’s journey to health?
  • Why is telling your story important?
  • Who should tell your story and who is your targeted audience?

These questions and their answers will be illustrated by a community that has harnessed the power of storytelling to advance health improvement efforts in profound ways. Wade Norwood and Dina Faticone will talk with us about how the Healthy Kids, Healthy Communities initiative in Rochester, NY, leverages data, partners, social marketing, and community engagement to tell a compelling narrative. They will also discuss the role of storytelling in advocacy and policy change as they work to ensure that the healthy choice is an accessible choice for every community member.
