Abstract
  • Healthy Eating, Active Living - Mapping Attributes using Participatory Photographic Surveys (HEAL MAPPS) was used to engage Albany’s Latino community to explore the environmental conditions that support or hinder healthful eating and physical activity behaviors among youth and families. HEAL MAPPS is a community-based participatory research tool developed by OSU obesity prevention researchers. Latinos were mobilized to assess Albany’s HEAL-related issues, prioritize concerns, and further develop advocacy skills and action groups. This project engaged emerging Latino leaders and residents with the wider community and increased capacity for improving the local HEAL environment and health inequities that exist in Albany. The specific aims of research: (a) provide culturally and linguistically appropriate leadership training (b) increase leadership skills and confidence in civic engagement (c) increase participants’ civic engagement, i.e. Make policy and program recommendations; develop a policy action plan; and disseminate project findings to the community and local policy makers. Albany residents “Familias Activas” generated 18 maps representing routes traveled on foot or by motor vehicle to interact with the Albany food and physical activity environment. They photographed over 222 features of the community related to healthy eating and physical activity for children, youth, and adults in Albany. Twelve participated in a focus group meeting to organize the community’s HEAL MAPPS™ photo journal for the community conversation. At the end of HEAL MAPPS project timeline, a community report will be completed and will be available in Spanish and English. Familias Activas leadership group will develop an advocacy campaign around one identified priority.
