Health through Imagery aims to energize and transform the conversation about health so that we are talking more about health and less about disease and money. We need to encourage full community participation and better questions. The program is based on the idea that health and wellness are created in communities, an idea that is supported by extensive medical, sociological, psychological, and biological research.
The images used
in Health through Imagery are familiar, local, and upbeat, and their accompanying messages encourage humor, resilience, good will, and other positive associations. The images and messages address compelling scientific information about the forces that influence health, including the importance of social, cultural, and political forces, as well as more the familiar biomedical and behavioral risks such as smoking, cholesterol, and exercise.
Pease explore some of the health through imagery pictures and messages and contact us if you are interested in our research or the images or to ask any questions.
