Comic Books for Safe Motherhood

She will be blogging about her experience every month, and you can learn more about her, the other Young Champions, and the program here.December, for me, brought unfortunate visa troubles and, rather than dodging Brazilian law and risking imprisonment, I had to flee back to the United States and wrangle with the Consulate here. Luckily by the end of the month I had a new visa in hand and returned to Brazil before the new year. These sorts of bureaucratic hiccups are so commonplace when working abroad, so I tried to take it in stride and be as productive as possible, despite being away from all the wonderful girls at Lua Nova’s recovery center!One of my main tasks in my 9-month placement in the Young Champions program is to create a host of didactic materials on maternity for the adolescent mothers living at the Lua Nova center during their drug-recovery process. I plunged into that task the last weeks while awaiting the Consulate’s decision to readmit me to Brazil. The process of creating these materials has been exciting and met with so many unique challenges: while in Niger I helped organize some didactic materials for post-operative fistula patients, but those focused almost exclusively on physical maladies and obligations as related to pregnancy, delivery, and the post-partum period.For the girls of Lua Nova, I am not battling lack of access to hospitals or physical maternal care, but instead facing the emotional challenges of what it is to be a mother, how to gain an attachment to your child, and most simply what on earth to do with a newborn infant, toddler, and older child in terms of nutrition, bathing, medical care, and non-aggressive discipline. To incorporate all of these crucial layers of psychological health of the mother, while still making the materials entertaining and approachable, I decided to write a “comic book” of sorts, detailing the life of a fictional 15-year old girl as she confronts drug addiction and teen pregnancy. Some of the text was taken directly from the words of the girls at Lua Nova as they explained their apprehensions and fears on how to be a mother in our group sessions. The point of the text is for it to be instantly relatable to a wide array of adolescent mothers in Brazil, whether they have had a substance addiction or not. It relies heavily on images, drawn from a talented artist friend of my sister, herself a mother of four who simply wanted to extend a helping hand to these mothers in Brazil. I am entirely indebted to her for her invaluable services and love the global outreach of moms helping moms!In addition to the book, I’ve written and designed instructional posters on breastfeeding, discipline, post-partum depression and other crucial issues to be hung around Lua Nova’s facilities, and am also in the middle of creating an interactive game that addresses challenges and solutions in motherhood, which I hope educators can use in group or individual settings to help mothers cope with the huge obstacles they face as they raise a child.Being in the US in December has been challenging as I missed the one-on-one interaction with the girls at Lua Nova. They give such strength to me and I learn constantly from them. I’m happy that I’ve been able to have the time to really sit down and write these materials, but it’s impossible to really finish these educational tools without the direct feedback from their intended audience. It reminds me of how crucial on-the-ground work is in any maternal health endeavor. Nothing can be created in a vacuum, and without the participation of the community we strive to impact, any effort will only be rendered moot. It’s all about local knowledge, local solutions, and local participation. That being said I’m thrilled to get back to Sorocaba and work face-to-face with these girls once more!Share this: ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read:last_img read more

The 11 Power 5 College Football Teams That Improved The Most Statistically In 2015

first_imgiowa midseason hype videoTwitter/@hawkeyeFBvideoVirtually every college football team makes changes from season to season. Players graduate, enroll, and transfer out and in, coaches take new jobs and rise through the ranks, and systems change all the time. In college football, you can have a team like TCU, which was a 4-8 club in 2013, find itself on the precipice of the College Football Playoff in 2014. While not every rise or fall is that drastic, the sport does lend itself to steep turnarounds. This year, Larry Fedora, Kirk Ferentz, and Bob Stoops all answered questions about their job statuses with remarkable runs, and all are positioned to go to top bowls, if not compete for national championship.These improvements bare themselves out on the stat sheets as well. When comparing the numbers from 2014 to 2015, it isn’t very shocking which teams have seen the biggest jumps this season.Using scoring offense and defense, we measured which power conference teams improved the most in total point differential from 2014 to 2015. Many of the top ten teams are among those that helped define the 2015 college football season. Next: Florida State >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10 Page 11 Page 12last_img read more

Focus on Good Nutrition in Anti-Doping Initiative in Schools

first_img Government’s anti-doping initiative in schools, will promote the importance of good nutrition Story Highlights Young athletes who give outstanding performances are subjected to tests Young athletes need to be knowledgeable about banned substances and food supplements Minister without Portfolio with responsibility for Sport, Hon. Natalie Neita Headley, says the focus of Government’s anti-doping initiative in schools, will be concentrated more toward promoting the importance of good nutrition and discouraging doping, rather than testing every young athlete.Speaking at a JIS ‘Think Tank’ on July 23, Mrs. Neita-Headley  said since the Prime Minister made a statement on the topic, “there has been quite a bit of controversy and that is as a result of persons not being very clear on what was meant.”Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, informed the House of Representatives on July 16, that the Government would begin testing young athletes in schools. She noted however, that this system would be introduced in conjunction with public education and sensitization programmes.Minister Neita-Headley explained that the Government’s plan will focus on assisting young athletes to understand the importance of good nutrition, in an effort to eliminate the temptation of taking food supplements.“Currently, young athletes are being tested as part of the Caribbean Free Trade Association (CARIFTA) Games and Penn Relays. What is not happening is that we are not conducting those tests on a wide scale here in Jamaica, as part of our championships,” the Minister added.She emphasized the need for young athletes to be knowledgeable about banned substances and food supplements and to take full responsibility for what goes into their bodies, adding that a lot of what is packaged into supplements can be found in our local everyday ground provisions, including yams.Meanwhile, President of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA), Dr.Warren Blake, said that young athletes who give outstanding performances are subjected to tests when they perform at the national level.“The approach to test exceptional young athletes is a means of validating our track and field programme, to show that this is obtained through genuine endeavours and competitiveness and not the result of illegal substances in sports,” Dr. Blake said.He further informed that the programme of anti-doping education in high schools will be strengthened.“The education programme has been going on in the high schools for some time, and when strengthened it will inform the young athletes on what to expect,” Dr. Blake pointed out.last_img read more

Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. J.C. Hutchinson, says that approximately 220 small farmers will be cultivating plots on the 2,400-acre farm to be established at Holland Estate in St. Elizabeth.Minister Hutchinson, who was speaking in a recent interview with JIS News, said that the property will be officially handed over on Monday, June 3.He said that acquisition of the property is another step in the Government’s commitment to get lands in the hands of farmers in order to boost agricultural production.He said that production from the farm will facilitate the reintroduction and strengthening of breakfast and lunch programmes in a number of schools in St. Elizabeth.“What we are looking mainly at is providing fruit juices and breakfast for the children and eliminating the bag juice. Many of the children come to school without breakfast, and we have found that the pilot project that we did some time ago when we had the breakfast programme going, that the attendance increased and the grades of the students also increased,” Mr. Hutchinson said.“So, we are going to be putting that into the schools on a sustainable basis where the children will be able to have a proper breakfast,” he added.Students at more than 800 schools across the island are provided with breakfast and/or lunch each week under the Government’s national school-feeding programme.
