Healthy Retailer Project 2013 Video

It’s finally uploaded!  Here is the 10 minute documentary video of our experience doing the Healthy Retailer Project over Summer 2013!  Please watch, share, and let us know what you think!

The Healthy Retailer Project is part of an effort to assess the availability and marketing of alcohol, tobacco, and food products in at least 10,000 stores across the state.  Participants are trained to use an app on their smartphone device to administer the survey, which takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.  Youth volunteers from Teens Making A Change youth council, Terra Nova high school, and San Francisco State University helped conduct 174 surveys in Daly City, Pacifica, South San Francisco, and even SFO International Airport!

In San Mateo County, three groups participated in data collection efforts:
North County Prevention Partnership
Talauma for Tongans
South County Sheriff’s Activities League

Special Thanks to our partners who provided logistical support and supervision for our youth volunteers:
-Diana Hill from San Mateo County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services’ Alcohol and Other Drug Services
-Shaunda Scruggs and Megan Griffin from the San Mateo Tobacco Education Coalition
-LisaMarie Miramontes, PhD from the Prevention Research Center
-Andrea Rufo from Project 4PLAY and Project ASAP
-John Bartolome from ODASA

The video footage was shot with an iPhone 5, and edited in iMovie.

*****WHAT IS DIGITAL STORYTELLING?***** 

Digital Storytelling is a creative and innovative method of participatory practice that engages ordinary people to use digital tools (still & moving pictures, music, sound, text, and narrative voice) in an expressive way to tell their stories in short 3-5 minute films.

 API Health Parity Coalition, in partnership with the Center for Digital Storytelling, conducted intensive 3-day workshops that included reflective writing, shared group story circles, group affirmation and feedback, guided reflection and script writing, audio recording of the storytellers’ voice, video editing learning (even for people with limited computer skills), and assisted digital story crafting and refining. 

API Health Parity Coalition hopes to use these stories about mental wellness for community education, anti-stigma campaigns, and advocacy to policymakers/funders.

~~~~~~~~~

The Asian & Pacific Islander Health Parity Coalition is a coalition of 30+ agencies in San Francisco that serve API communities. They envision healthy Asian & Pacific Islander (API) communities in San Francisco. Their mission is to achieve health parity for San Francisco’s Asian & Pacific Islander communities by identifying and addressing health and healthcare issues.
