Project Overview

We're looking for a skilled collateral material or advertising designer to help us update our marketing materials! We have copywritten five modules for an independent health literacy and mental health life skills program we designed for our underserved, rare, and chronic disease and educationally disabled youth transitioning to adult healthcare. We won The CODY Award in 2022, and with that, our name changed to The Healthcare Navigation Project.

Did you know that only 15% of all our youth, with or without special health care needs, are transitioned to adult care by their providers? We did! The Healthcare Navigation Project is the first independent and immersive health literacy and life skills program© in the country.

We use the Patient-Centered Medical and Specialty Home models, CDC definition of health literacy, and The World Health Organization's three main life skills components for mental health as our foundation, and focus on #3 (good health and well-being) and #10 (reduced inequalities) of the 17 Sustainable goals set forth from UNICEF. We created an immersive experience. For example, we learn basic healthcare navigation skills in part by learning telephone skills and body language and using a HIPAA-compliant script (took 20 years to cull the questions), and we call physicians together. These kids have never even been to the doctor by themselves, never mind calling one.

With your help, we can empower our youth and their families to navigate their own healthcare. We have all the pieces of the program and took eight modules and trimmed them down to five. Currently, they are Navigating Specialty Healthcare; Resources for Mental Health, and everything else; Basic Healthcare Navigation Skills; Let's talk about everything pharmacy; customer care and the future of healthcare. You would be the missing and final piece needed to truly launch our program. Without the collateral materials, we don't have a program!

We have a Taproot volunteer who can do copy who spent 15 years at US Healthcare, and I have a background in that as well as graphic design; however, my graphic design skills are too old! We also have a copywriter who works for the NYC Department of Health during the day. I can help with whatever you need, but I'm looking for your direction and expertise!
