For Me, For Us: Promoting healthy weight, access to health care and healthy births to diverse Utah communities
For Me, For Us is a community training video addressing access to health care, infant mortality, and obesity. Versions are designed for Utah's African American, Hispanic/Latino and Pacific Islander communities.
Utah minority groups face unique health challenges. African American and Pacific Islander babies are significantly more likely to die before their first birthday than infants statewide. Hispanics are less likely to have access to needed medical care than any other racial/ethnic group. All three groups have higher obesity rates than the statewide population. These videos address these issues in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner.
The videos include tips like preparing healthier meals, taking care of your health during pregnancy and pregnancy spacing. They also remind viewers that everyone should get an annual checkup, even if they are feeling well because common diseases often have no symptoms.
