Welcome to the online photographic journal of Our Stories, Our Health.
This exciting three year journey in community-based participatory research will explore digital media, story-telling and community partnership as dynamic and innovative tools to highlight health disparities in the aging Asian-American population.
Here you will find a chronological documentation of our working experiences. Recognizing in our everyday interaction with community members that there is a divider in terms of Internet usage among the aging population and younger family members, we created this visually-friendly journal as a source of encouragement for inter-generation interaction and knowledge sharing between those in the grandparent generation and younger community members.
The majority of this site will have limited English text since most of our elders are limited-English proficient but rich in photos and brief written accounts. The site navigation was designed to promote easy-access.
We hope that elders involved will share this site with their family members and in turn, younger community members will utilize this linking tools to develop and enrich relationships with the elders in their life.
