Rural Futures Institute Highlights Story of MHDI PhotoVoice Participant, Community Builder

Gladys Godinez, a participant in the Minority Health Disparities Initiative’s  Health Voice Vision project, was recently interviewed by Chuck Schroeder, the Directer of the Rural Futures Institute. In this episode of Catch of with Chuck, Gladys discusses a collaboration with a committed leadership team in the Lexington, Nebraska community that aims to build a welcoming and inclusive space for health, education and a thriving rural future.

Funded by the Rural Futures Institute, HealthVoiceVision is a combined Photovoice (PV) and survey research project that links community voices/images with rigorous social science research methods to provide more insight into the health of rural communities. This project addresses an important gap in our understanding of local health by providing data at sub-county, community specific levels.  For more information on Health Voice Vision, please visit the MHDI website or contact
