4065.0 Underserved Populations: Innovative Health Promotion Program
Tuesday, November 1, 2011: 8:30 AM
Effective health promotion/health communication has been in existence for several decades for a variety of populations. However, persistent and in some cases growing health disparities present a challenge to program planners to develop effective, evidence-based programs for underserved and marginalized groups. This session presents creative applications of theoretical frameworks and methodologies that have been utilized to create programs for diverse populations in traditional and non-traditional settings
Session Objectives: 1. Identify challenges associated with including low socioeconomic position populations in communication and behavioral intervention research. 2. Explain the purpose of using a community planning framework for developing a health education/promotion program for underserved populations. 3. Evaluate the effectiveness of interventions aimed at improving health behaviors of underserved/marginalized populations.
