MyVoice was excited to share our work with leading advocates for children’s health in the city of Chicago. We were invited to speak to a group of researchers and clinicians from the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and the Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute.
Together, Tammy, Melissa, and Arrice presented a talk to researchers and clinicians as part of their Voices of Child Health in Chicago program.
The title of their presentation was MyVoice: Texting with America’s Youth to Improve Health and Wellbeing. We discussed how MyVoice is building a direct link between youth and their advocates using our national text message survey platform and rapid research methods.
Identifying critical and shifting policy and health issues, then collecting a national set of first-person experiences from youth across the country and packaging our findings for a targeted set of audiences allows MyVoice to add the missing voice of youth to conversations happening among health care and policy leaders.
We were so grateful to the Ann and Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital for hosting us and allowing us to share our unique approach to youth outreach, advocacy, and research.
