Taking Effective Action TEA Healthy Sound Bites

Taking Effective Action, Incorporated TEA is applying for the Health Information Outreach Award grant to advance and support equal access to biomedical information and improve individual access to information on the Research Program among minority and underserved faith-based populations in parts of the Southeastern /Atlantic Region SEA; Washington, District of Columbia DC, Maryland; Virginia, and North Carolina. TEA will produce a podcast series, a web resource page, and a blog series on precision medicine MedlinePlus and an research program overview, PubMed. The podcast series, Taking Effective Action TEA Healthy Sound Bites Series, will target African Americans, traditionally underrepresented populations and involve medically underserved areas in DC, Maryland; Virginia, and North Carolina. This includes four podcast episodes to be released in intervals during February 2021 and March 2021. The podcasts will be promoted via an aggressive social media campaign. In tandem, TEA will create blog posts to accompany each podcast topic on its www.t-action.org and sistahvoices.org websites. SISTAH Voices, Sisters Inspiring Sisters to Activate Health, provides a unique forum for African American 92 to engage in interactive health education with community members and health professionals and to access health information resources. TEA created this forum since African American 92 play influential roles in the health of their families and are an important community partner to TEAs education programs and support the improvement of precision medicine in African Americans as a whole. In addition, TEA proposes to have a train-the trainer program with five faith-based leaders/organizations who will be trained on the Program, precision medicine, and NLM online health information resources to help increase knowledge and sustain the education of African Americans.
