East African refugees - now New Americans - and their Atlanta neighbors collaborate to create on-air, on-line, and on-stage productions promoting health and cultural competency intheir community. HEARMe, or Health Education via Airwaves for Refugees, melds African storytelling with American dramedy. Listeners learn from the struggles and triumphs of realistic characters, written and voiced by community members in their own languages, as they work to become healthy, integrated members of their metro Atlanta community.
Funded by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson and Benton Foundations, HEARMe is a collaborative project between Sagal Radio, Clarkston Community Center, and Emory University's CFCP.
