Photovoice Engages Older Adults of Color in New Hampshire

Health Promotion Research Center at Dartmouth Co-PI, Dr. Anna Adachi-Mejia, was featured in a recent press release for her work on a project sponsored by the Endowment for Health. For this project, Dr. Adachi-Mejia used the technique of photovoice to engage the perspectives of communities of color and of language minorities regarding the experience of aging in New Hampshire. This project includes images and voices of older adults from Bhutanese, Hispanic/Latino, and Black/African-American communities in southern New Hampshire. Visit the project page to learn more.

Through this research, we’re striving to understand their experience living in New Hampshire and encouraging them to share stories that would otherwise go unheard.
