AHA Partners as Storytellers

Partners shared how they are considering replicating the programs and policies they heard about at the AHA Quarterly Partnership Meeting. Partners also considered how to apply the information shared and/or plug into the work happening.

From providing “loose parts” for active play among children to mapping vulnerable populations during the Wake County greenway master planning process, AHA partners are creating a healthier Wake County. Last week, 11 AHA partners presented short stories of how their organizations are increasing access to healthy food and physical activity at AHA’s Quarterly Partnership Meeting and Storyteller Showcase.

Each of the stories were presented in a modified Pecha Kucha style, which emphasizes visuals and a short presentation to tell the story. All the presentations are posted on AHA’s website, along with contact information for the presenters. AHA partners and others who attended had the opportunity to consider how they could replicate what they heard from the presenters, apply the information, or plug into the work these organizations are doing.
