Please post your comments to the week 10 readings on the built environment and social injustice here.
Here is an article from the NY Times that Tim spotted that serves as a good example of the effects of the free market on health in relation to the distribution of resources.
Please remember to take 10-12 photos of the built environment and (your) health in the next two weeks. I would like you to bring either your digital cameras with USB computer connecting cord or your photos on a flash/thumbdrive to class on Wednesday, March 25th. You will participate in a Photovoice focused group discussion that day.
I have added a new page to this blog on the Built Environment Photovoice Project. You will find useful links for planning and organizing your project on this page.
Please post your comments to the Week 9 readings on Photovoice and photo elicitation strategies here. Remember that I would like for you to comment upon each other’s comments–in effect, creating a dialogue amongst all of you about the readings. Also, please try to bring your experiences related to what you are reading into the discussion. This could tie in to what you have learned in other classes or how you have learned about things in other classes, or how you have learned about these things and thought about these things outside the classroom.
Please post your comments to the readings on principles of CBPR research here. Remember that I am interested in your holding a conversation with each other on the readings, so please comment on each others’ comments. I am also interested in seeing you link your ideas about the readings and course discussions to your own experiences–inside and outside the classroom.
