Association of Farmworker Opportunity Program, Arlington, VA.
The set of materials was designed to provide nutrition instruction to Spanish-speaking farm workers using radio broadcasts. It includes audiocassette tapes of four novellas (mini-dramas) on nutrition-related topics (diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure, pregnancy, smart shopping), talk shows on the same topics, a public service announcement on diabetes, and a guide for service providers using the tapes for nutrition instruction. The provider's guide, presented in both English and Spanish, consists of a discussion of the goals and uses of the radio programs, procedures for planning and implementing a radio nutrition broadcast series, and notes on marketing the broadcasts to the community. Appended materials include the four novella scripts and four program evaluation instruments: a pre- and post-broadcast survey, focus group discussion guide, focus group background information sheet, and sample focus group questions.
