(SAVANNAH, GA) A public health professor at Georgia Southern University has facilitated a Photovoice project to identify social, cultural, and physical barriers that discourage breastfeeding by African American mothers in Chatham County and to identify opportunities to remove those obstacles. Nandi A. Marshall, DrPH, MPH, CHES, an associate professor and Interim Associate Dean of Academic Affairs in the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health, has published a photo book, “Savannah H.O.P.E. Photovoice Project,” documenting personal experiences from local African-American mothers. Photovoice projects tell a story using a combination of photography and storytelling to amplify the participants’ voices by their experiences through their own lens.
