Health: From a Kid's Perspective. An innovative "Photovoice" study organized this fall by Anna Adachi-Mejia, PhD, a cancer prevention researcher at NCCC, focused on identifying factors that influence health--from kids' perspectives.
Dr. Adachi-Mejia met with groups of middle school and high school students in Laconia, NH. She lent them digital cameras and blank journals and encouraged them to photograph, write about, and discuss what makes it easy or hard to eat fruits and vegetables, be active, and get enough sleep.
