Evaluating the effectiveness of a participatory video education intervention on nutrition literacy and food habits of adolescent girls in rural Ghana
The PRAM team unites monthly to provide project updates, present research protocols, practice dissertations defences, and more.
This month, PhD candidate Mona Ghadirian presented her doctoral research, which examined the effectiveness of a participatory video intervention in promoting critical nutrition literacy of adolescent girls in rural Ghana. What Mona uncovered through her work was that exposure to the participatory video intervention not only led to an increase in critical nutrition literacy, but also had a transformative influence on participants, who modified their nutrition-related behaviour and their environment.
In the video below, you can view an example of this intervention, as well as learn more about Mona's fantastic work!
Fun fact: This was the first in-person PRAM meeting since 2020!
