Recognizing both its popularity and effectiveness at improving knowledge and influencing health behavior for the Spanish-speaking Hispanic/Latino population, the Colorado Health Foundation partnered with Evolve Communication, Entravision (parent company of Univision), and the state Medicaid agency to create 12, half-hour episodes of a telenovela for broadcast on Univision Colorado. The telenovela, a popular format among the Spanish-speaking community, promoted insurance enrollment and health information as a central part of its story line. Statistically significant change was experienced among viewers’ behavior related to disease management, healthy living, and seeking enrollment in public health insurance as a result of watching the telenovela. Join us to learn more about Encrucijada and explore how to adapt and license the series for broadcast in your own community.
