Abstract

Community members in Lagos, Nigeria, are not able to correctly define blood pressure, its causes, and the impact certain values have upon health. Community Health Educators (CHEs) are volunteers trained through Northwestern University’s current Access to Health initiative to educate low-literacy community members, who do not have access to vital health information. Utilizing an active engagement method can improve learning and retention of information by the CHEs and similar audiences. An example of this is drawing, which can help educate and empower CHEs to teach health topics to low-literacy community members.
