Speakers: Deborah Reed, MSPH, PhD, RN, FAAOHN and Sarah Febres-Cordero, MS, RN

Looking for a fresh take on health education? Join us for this webinar featuring authors from HPP’s special supplement: Arts in Public Health and learn more about how communities use art to ‘tell the story of health behavior and behavior change.

Dr. Deborah Reed and Sarah Ferbes-Cordero, MS, RN discuss how two community-led programs used the spoken word and illustrations to engage communities with local organizations and artists to address health, safety, and harm reduction initiatives where other methods had fallen short. Notably, these authors share how these partnerships were welcomed by the communities and explain steps toward sustainability.

Learning Objective
