    Great job on the health educator video!

  • Gloria Vermie

    Health Educators are a vital component of the backbone of both public and
    medical health care

  • Sean McCormick

    Very nice! This was great for public health undergrads in my Teaching and
    Learning Process course.

  • Danie Lovely

    Thanks for the great video. I am currently in the school of Public health
    at Tulane and was feeling a bit worried about the overall job outlook. What
    do you think Job prospects will be like for Public health education
    specialists in 2014? Again thank you so much!

    While the intent of this piece is excellent, the execution is lacking and
    that is due to lack of education. Educators in general (I am one) have a
    terrible habit of running with things that “seem” like they should be right
    instead of waiting for evidence. What is happening with our current
    anti-obesity campaigns, BMI testing, and nutrition education is that eating
    disorders are now being triggered in children as young as five. Eating
    disorders are more deadly than obesity and they certainly kill our children
    faster. I implore you to look at this study, “Trading Health for a Healthy
    Weight: The Unintended Consequences of Healthy Weight Initiatives.”
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23421694

    The use of the term “FATTER” demonstrates no understanding of the role
    fat-shaming plays in contributing to rising weights and rates of eating
    disorders and is truly reprehensible coming from an educator. If you truly
    care about children, you will pull this piece and go back to the drawing
    board. I am not opposed to health education, I am opposed to misguided,
    counterproductive and damaging health education.

    This piece, “Ten Things Parents Wish Educators Knew About Eating Disorders”
    would be a good place to start in understanding why this is not okay.

    I love the flow and message of Taylor Mali’s poems. This one feels a little
    Seuss-y with the rhymes, but that just helps it stick.

  • Omega Rainbow

    *beatiful* 😀
    

  • Mat Turner

    Seuss-esque. Lovin’ it.

    Healthy Students do better in school!

    “An Apple a Day Is Not Enough” is a powerful poem written and performed by
    Taylor Mali (a well-known spoken word artist and teacher) about the
    importance of health education. It’s done in the style of kinetic
    typography. We must get the word out about the importance of health
    education and its ability to get this country’s health back on track—but we
    can’t do it alone. Please share this video.

    As a new mom, I gotta say, I really needed this. I’ll keep watching it over
    and over again to make sure I raise a healthy boy :-)

    Health starts at home, health is an everyday practice. Be a good example
    for your kids.

    Right on, Taylor Mali. I am with you. I love the way the word animation
    entertains and communicates the impactful message with clarity. Thanks for
    sharing.

  • Matthew Shiers

    This message needs a lot more publicity than a mere six-digit figure on
    Youtube!

    @mtgal48 I’m pretty sure they created it using adobe after effects, it’s a
    long process

    You should probably look up FDR and see what he died from…poor health for
    about the last 20 years of life!
