The COVID-19 NAVIGATOR Youth Empowerment Pilot Program (EPIGRAM): A Health Literacy Collection and Curriculum for the Coronavirus Pandemic

The COVID-19 NAVIGATOR Youth Empowerment Pilot Program (EPIGRAM) will enable schoolage students to access health information and resources to learn about the COVID-19 pandemic and how to engage with others during challenging times. Resources will be collected into a resource portal, with an underlying database structure using a detailed metadata schema where visitors can filter and query for videos based on audience, age-level, and topic. Resources to be included are those that describe the pandemic, the health consequences of COVID-19, steps that children can take to reduce its impact, and preparatory steps toward finding, evaluating and using health information online. Resources will be structured into a short module for each age group (primary, intermediate/lower-middle, and upper-middle/high school) that can be integrated into teachers’ resources to create informed and health-literate students.
