Transmedia Storytelling Can Be an Effective Health Intervention

“East Los High,” a pioneering transmedia edutainment program purposely designed to address issues of reproductive and sexual health among teens, is demonstrating the power and potential of leveraging entertainment media for health promotion and social change. Using analytics tracking, a viewer survey and a laboratory experiment, researchers studied the audience reach, engagement, and impact of the Emmy-nominated program’s first season. The results suggest the program’s sexual and reproductive messaging had a strong cognitive, emotional and social influence on its target audience of young Latinos.

However, there also is evidence that switching from a standard to a nonstandard schedule increases the safety net. These mixed results suggest that the working mothers most in need social support are the least likely to actually have access to it.

One in five Mexican-American children is obese, according to national statistics. While scientists agree that diet and exercise play a role in obesity, studies also suggest that children who don’t get enough sleep may also be at increased risk for obesity. A new study by Suzanna Martinez, Ph.D., aims to find out whether Mexican-American children who don’t get enough sleep are more likely to become obese due to poor eating habits and being less physically active.
