In the course of conducting our work at the Southern Center, we have learned several practical lessons which warrant further dissemination to communication practitioners and researchers alike. Some of the lessons we have learned pertain to methods for studying communication to reduce health disparities. Other lessons offer specific prescriptions that can inform communicators who are developing messages for poor and culturally diverse groups.

The following series of videos were filmed at the Morehouse School of Medicine and the University of Georgia with a live studio audience and edited into thematic units. They feature the expertise of those working with and in the African American faith-based community. Wihile the target audience is Georgia’s public information/risk communication officers, we believe the topics and information to be relevant to a broader constituency. You can watch these videos sequentially, or focus on the topics of most interest.
