Policy Brief: Digital Storytelling for Health Research and Policy

I am happy to share a policy brief compiled by Kassandra Hamilton, one of our former student research assistants for the Changing Climate, Changing Health, Changing Stories project. This brief outlines the potentials and opportunities for using digital storytelling as a health research method and a way to effectively communicate health information within policy circles. As you will see from the brief, our team has found this method to be an excellent way to engage the story-creators in the research process in a culturally-appropriate manner, and to engage the story-viewers in the lived experiences and emotions of the storytellers.  Read the brief.
