Sylvia’s Blog – Sheffield Pioneer Group Session 8
Jennifer Allinson, Sheffield Community Health Champion, described the life experiences that led to her interest in championing community health. She spoke of her positive gains, in both knowledge and confidence, which have helped her to encourage others into achieving good health and well being.
The group were then taxed with listing the attributes necessary for a future NANA champion. This proved to be not only interesting, but greatly entertaining. After tea break we discussed ways of reaching our potential audience; in order to pass on healtrhy living advice. Post It notes were soon filled with ‘brilliant’ ideas – including possible venues, advertising methods etc:-
Maggie suggested we adopted a Flash Mob script. Never heard of such a thing but we might well ‘give it a go’ next week.
Don’t envy Maggie and Sarah having to collate all our ideas to bring back to a later session!
