We Engage 4 Health develops and uses comic-based stories for health outreach for ALL AGES.
Stories make it EASIER and MORE FUN to learn about health and science.
Seeing story characters in action helps us VISUALIZE ourselves improving our own health!
WE4H Community Health Fairs are 3–4-hour events that feature 8–10 health stations that attendees visit “open house” style — coming and going at the times they desire.
Most health stations feature graphic-style mini stories on large display panels that participants share in reading aloud together. A post-reading hands-on science activity or demo follows.
Some health stations feature health screenings or information about local community health resources.
Health Fellowship Events are 2-hour programs attended by the members of an organization and the friends and family they invite. A Health Fellowship Event is ideal to offer at the usual monthly (or other interval) meeting of an organization.
In the first hour, attendees visit three health stations. Health stations feature graphic-style mini stories on large display panels that attendees share in reading aloud. Hands-on activities follow the story.
In the second hour, attendees enjoy food together and share their experiences with the stories and activities they participated in at the health stations.
Both Health Fairs and Health Fellowship Events are sponsored by community organizations.
Both Health Fairs and Health Fellowship Events incorporate health stations with mini stories and hands-on activities. Health Fairs typically have 10–12 stations. Health Fellowship Events typically have 3–4 stations.
For both types of events, sponsoring community organizations choose the health stations from a set offered by We Engage 4 Health.
For both types of events, We Engage 4 Health provides setup, materials, and health station leaders. Sponsoring organizations provide organization members to be trained as volunteers, facility and date to hold program, and recruitment of attendees.
Health Fairs are larger events open to the entire community and follow a 3–4 hour “Open House” schedule (people coming and going). Health Fairs typically have health professionals offering screenings.
Health Fellowship Events are open to members of the sponsoring organization and the friends and family they invite. They are 2-hour events with specific starting and ending times. They typically do not include health screenings.
