Health Advocates (or advocates for short). Advocates receive training in research skills,
project development and technology related to their projects (for example, use of video
cameras, video editing software, Web site development, etc.). Advocates share their draft
projects with community members for evaluation and feedback. They then finalize their
projects based on the feedback and disseminate them to their communities. Advocates
can check out electronic equipment (such as laptop computers, video cameras, and digital
voice recorders) for the duration of the program. Travel is paid for, and advocates receive
a small stipend while participating in the program.
