Hoberecht, T., & Miller-Cribbs, J. (2011). Some health literacy aspects of a photovoice project. [Article]. Journal of Consumer Health on the Internet, 15(4), 389-395. doi: 10.1080/15398285.2011.623590

The Tulsa Photovoice project, arising from a week-long immersive experience for students at the University of Oklahoma School of Community Medicine in Tulsa, Oklahoma, introduced medical students and others to a community-based, participatory research project. The project yielded nearly 500 photographs that documented community and relevant health issues and other survey and interview data. A preliminary examination of the data from the project reveals some aspects relating to the research participants’ health literacy and provides important insights into the communication skills of the health providers involved.
