From the GMR: Draft multimedia in Hmong

We are working with Healthy Roads Media to do heart health series in Hmong - see first two drafts at http://www.healthyroadsmedia.org/Miscellaneous/Drafts/drafts.htm (Physical Activity and Cut Down on Salt). Note the cultural adaptations, especially for the foods. We believe that audio and video formats are very valuable for ESL/English Language Learner audiences.

Input/feedback would be welcome - please send to me or via our Contact page at www.hmonghealth.org. Also, please share via other NN/LM lists in regions with a Hmong population. Also, let me know if you'd like to join the Hmong Health listserv - instructions at http://www.hmonghealth.org/news/articles.asp?NID=2.

We are also linking to other multimedia in Hmong (and some in English), including streaming video from ECHO Minnesota, http://www.echominnesota.org.

Also note that we are standardizing our translations to the Green Hmong dialect. We hope to include both White and Green translations in the Health Dictionary. Volunteers to work on this are welcome - just contact me.

This work is funded by our current NN/LM Health Disparities subcontract, Networking for Hmong and Immigrant Health. "This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. N01-LM-6-3503 with the University of Illinois at Chicago."

Thanks for your input - Peg
