Practice Notes: Strategies in Health Education
Health Education & Behavior, v36 n5 p805-809 2009
The "Practice Notes" section is intended to keep readers informed about health education practice around the country. It is an attempt to spread the word about exemplary strategies, initiatives, and programs and share successes in overcoming obstacles or challenges. This article features two new programs on health education: (1) Project FIESTA; and (2) Internet Dating and Safety. Project FIESTA was developed to increase parental involvement and effectiveness in an effort to increase completion rates of treatment for tuberculosis infection among Latino adolescents. The specific objective of this project was to increase parents' use of praise and rewards contingent on their adolescent's adherence to isoniazid. The Internet Dating and Safety workshop provided gay and nonidentified men who have sex with men (MSM) an opportunity to explore cultural norms of meeting sex partners online. In addition, it offered a set of personal safety guidelines for the initial contact, written in a culturally sensitive context reflecting MSMs' online dating patterns.
