Overview:

The Healthy Monday team collaborated with the integrative therapies professionals at Columbia University Irving Medical Center to design and market an action oriented program to persuade healthcare professionals to take their own advice and engage in healthier behaviors. The effective weekly communication strategy offered by the Health Monday campaign has been shown to educate individuals about the benefits of adopting and maintaining more frequent healthy behaviors and led to reported changes in health practices in stress reduction, physical activity, and diet. Preliminary data from the Healthy Monday Nurses Program demonstrated that the background information and practices helped improve the participants’ knowledge of the benefits of the activities as well as a greater engagement and receptivity to the messaging provided.

Learning Objectives: 

1. Understand how the Healthy Monday program, engaged hospital staff to participate in a worksite wellness program focused on self-care and stress reduction.
2. See free content designed for this program, including material provided by clinical and health practitioner experts.
3. Adopt a communication strategy that uses a weekly Monday cue as a ‘fresh start’ and support a mindset of starting each week focusing on  personal health.
4. Demonstrate how to deliver weekly health messaging across a variety of media every Monday to a targeted group of professionals.

Overview:

Health educators and providers who specialize in patient education, adolescent health, or even young adult health challenges may find that the current available materials in their field fall short of leaving lasting impressions, offering community empowerment and teaching the ability to markedly improve personal health decision-making. As is often the case, youth and young adults may take their cue from trends on social media, and rely heavily on unvetted "health" information  favored by algorithms that have no grounding in health equity. What if we could turn the tables and allow those with lived experiences tell their stories in a curated forum with specific health aims for metacognitive outcomes? This community-based method for exploring health promotion is a tried and trusted method for generating compelling, transformative, learning as well as an arsenal of promotional materials and health messaging for practitioners, providers, and program planners.

Learning Objectives:

Learn how to organize a remote or in-person Photovoice Project with  specified aims for tackling a pertinent mental or behavioral health challenge.

Gather testimonials for strengths-based lived experiences, and structure the findings for presentation with investigator-participant presenters

Pilot a classroom for sharing de-identified testimonials and HIPPA compliant photographic images with system stakeholders (health care clients, health care providers, community health practitioners).
