Viral Hepatitis Digital Stories

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

The digital stories created by participants in the research project “Digital Health Stories: Video Interventions for Hepatitis C in Colorado” (protocol #11-0243) are ready for viewing at the web link below. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is the project funder. For more information, contact CDPHE’s Viral Hepatitis Program, 303 692 2780; hepatitiscolorado.info

After you watch one or more of the videos (average length for each video is 3 minutes), we invite you to complete a 10-minute survey. The survey is the same for each digital story. We will use the information obtained from the survey research to understand the influence of digital health stories on viewers’ perceptions of hepatitis and on hepatitis prevention.

Please forward the digital stories and survey to individuals you may know who are affected with hepatitis, completed treatment for hepatitis, have a family member or close friend infected with hepatitis, or have experience in hepatitis awareness.

Sample image from the survey is below.
