Event Details

Story sharing is an effective empowerment strategy in promoting health behavior change. As readers become engaged and identify with the characters, they become more receptive to the story�s message and more open to adopting behavior modeled by the story characters. This learning lab will start with an overview of story-making and the principles of creating success stories. Next, facilitators will provide clear steps to create stories with community co-designers and an example of a story seeking to increase food literacy in breast cancer survivors. Attendee groups will then choose a topic, identify three big ideas, and draft a script following a 3-step story arc. Groups will read their story out loud as its characters and complete a story impact survey. A Comic Life demo will be shared. It will end with a Q&A and sharing of resources including �Power of Stories How-To Guide�
