What is Diabetes?

Posted by: In: Uncategorized 08 Mar 2006 Comments: 0

Animax just finished an animated DVD about Type II Diabetes for Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science and Project Health LAMP (Health Literacy Augmentation for Multicultural Populations.) We worked with the project leader Dr. José Luís Calderón and Greg Singer, who also is a contributing writer at Animation World Network (AWN.)

We animated both English and Spanish versions of a video that helps folks with Type II Diabetes better understand the disease, how to manage it and how to stay healthy. The video features a woman who has diabetes talking about her experience with the disease.

The team at Health LAMP are big proponents of using character animation to communicate health messages. Especially when dealing with diverse audiences where English is a Second Language (ESL), animation can help to make the information more palatable and relatable. While the focus in the video is on a personal story, there are also Flash animated motion graphics depicting the biological implications of the disease in a visual style that isn’t too visceral.

We’re also starting another project with Health LAMP to help women with limited English language skills better understand breast cancer and the importance of getting regular mammographies.
