eHealth

Partly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, access to digital information and communication now has an increasing importance in both the work of healthcare professionals and in patients’ everyday life. It changes the way in which healthcare is delivered, how information is exchanged within and between organisations and how patients and other actors’ access and manage information. Currently, innovation is imperative in the healthcare sector and today there is a focus on how different eHealth services can improve healthcare. With increased emphasis on various eHealth services, it is important to explore different ways to deliver health promotion through the internet, in order to better support people from ethnic minority groups living with diabetes and related illnesses

Using social media

We view social media as a powerful tool for sharing and promoting evidence-based health information that improves the lives of ethnic minority and other vulnerable people diagnosed with diabetes and other chronic conditions.

We manage a YouTube Channel that features short to-the-point videos reporting published health research and data that help reduce the risk of diabetes and related illnesses (e.g. Covid-19), or encoruage early detection, to prevent disease from getting worse, in ethnic minority groups.

All our YouTube content is prepared and edited by tech-savvy UK university student volunteers on formal work placements.

See example videos below.


We rely entirely on donations to purchase the hardware (e.g. laptops) and pay the annual subscriptions for relevant software (e.g. Adobe design software for creating motion graphics) that our volunteers need to create good quality video content.
