Vision Voice: A Multimedia Exploration of Diabetes and Vision Loss in East Harlem


, : Vision Voice: A Multimedia Exploration of Diabetes and Vision Loss in East Harlem. Progress in Community Health Partnerships 9(3): 335-343

East Harlem, New York, is a community actively struggling with diabetes and its complications, including vision-related conditions that can affect many aspects of daily life. Vision Voice was a qualitative community-based participatory research (CBPR) study that intended to better understand the needs and experiences of people living with diabetes, other comorbid chronic illnesses, and vision loss in East Harlem. Using photovoice methodology, four participants took photographs, convened to review their photographs, and determined overarching themes for the group's collective body of work. Identified themes included effect of decreased vision function on personal independence/mobility and self-management of chronic conditions and the importance of informing community members and health care providers about these issues. The team next created a documentary film that further develops the narratives of the photovoice participants. The Vision Voice photovoice project was an effective tool to assess community needs, educate and raise awareness.
