About the seminar: The Movin’ for LIFE Photovoice project is a community-engaged project focused on positive and negative aspects of their neighborhood that influence their health. More than 20 residents participated in the project, meeting in groups that convened four times over the course of the project. At each session, participants were encouraged to take photos that reflected both positive and negative aspects of health in their neighborhoods. The results provided compelling, inspiring, and insightful stories and images. Seminar attendees will hear from some of the photographers, the project team, and learn the following: to list the steps to developing innovative community-engaged projects like photovoice, describe the unique benefits of visual data in health research, discuss the challenges and supports of community-engaged projects, and discuss the importance of engaging community members in public health initiatives.
