ANATOMY OF AN ENCORE!
Each Encore! Featuring Public Health post starts with inspiration from arts and entertainment. Contributors (soon to be more than just me) share reactions to what they have seen, heard, felt, i.e., experienced. Perhaps a contributor read a book with a character struggling with a mental illness or watched a move in which a character rides a motorcycle and doesn’t wear a helmet or heard a song that mentions (or not) the use condoms…COVID-19…and wants to write/talk about it.
The public health twist in each post is the encore to the original arts and entertainment experience, another look or an extended view. And, for this site, the encore may also feature what is not included. Perhaps a contributor wants to help people by sharing links to real resources for families struggling with mental Illnesses or information about how many injuries could be avoided by wearing a motorcycle helmet or context via real numbers on condom usage. Posts can also include resources on how you can get involved with the issue or arts / entertainment project. In any case, the encore strives to be interesting, informative an inspiring.
