Multilingual Health Media


TPT Now logo

TPT NOW, a public emergency streaming service of Twin Cities Public Broadcasting Station, applied and received funding from The Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) Region 6 to develop culturally relevant infographics and videos to improve access to reliable, actionable health information that helps historically marginalized communities make informed decisions about their health.

About the Project

TPT NOW searched MedlinePlus, a free and easy-to-use consumer health information resource from the National Library of Medicine. Then they collaborated with their cultural community partners to prepare public service announcements in different languages including Spanish (Español), Hmong (Hmoob), Somali (Af-Soomaali). and English for the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. 

How to Use

Now the graphics and videos are publicly available for you to use in your own community! They're designed for both broadcast and social media. So enhance engagement and access to MedlinePlus using NNLM Multilingual Health Media.

You will discover:

  • 51 health topics
  • 264 infographics (1920x1080 pixels with 96 dpi resolution)
  • 20 videos (MP4 files)
  • 4 languages (Spanish, Hmong, Somali and English)
