Subject: How To Be a Super Friend video series for children
[Please excuse cross-postings.]
Hi there, everyone --
The East Brunswick Public Library has a grant-funded health literacy initiative called "Just For the Health Of It" that provides health literacy outreach and research services throughout Middlesex County. One of our partners is Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. A team of medical students who are interested in developmental pediatrics have presented an in-person programming series for children called "How To Be a Super Friend" at our library for the past two school years, the goal of which is to break down stigmas before they even become part of a child's belief system and promote acceptance and friendship among all people. We had several sessions scheduled to take place at our library during these last two months, so in place of them the students have begun developing an online version of the series.
An in-person session usually consists of a mini-lesson and discussion, a craft, a game, and a wrap-up. So far one of the medical students has broken down one session on autism into several short videos, and two other students are working on some more videos to add. Past in-person sessions have centered on vision impairments, ADHD, physical disabilities, and hearing impairments.
The medical students would be happy to have their videos reach as many people as possible, so please feel free to share their playlist
with your patrons. We will continue to add to it as they create more content. Thank you for helping to spread their message!
Hope you're all doing well!
