Healthflicks is a project to build health literacy among teenage urban audiences that receive the majority of their entertainment though online video repositories such as YouTube or Google videos. Healthflicks will use mentored students to develop and produce web video vignettes on teen health topics, featuring scenarios and scripts created by teens with librarian and educator oversight, with a cohort of authentic and self-motivated teen writers, actors, and production crew and urban new Haven locations. Partners will include The Cushing Whitney Medical Library as grant coordinator, resource for accurate health information, and after-school activity location, Hill Regional Career High School as a source of student participants and actors, and the Office of New Haven and State Affairs at Yale to provide access to Yale and New Haven-based filming locations and advice.
