Creating a Photovoice Methodology: Documenting Food Insecurity Among UW Students

Students worked with UW researchers to outline a photovoice study examining food insecurity among college students. The team read and analyzed peer-reviewed journals on the photovoice technique, food insecurity, and other related topics, then created a step-by-step process for the potential photovoice study to be approved by the Institutional Review Board. The goal of the study is to raise awareness of the issue of college student food insecurity, encourage research on sustainable practices, and introduce the benefits and limitations of the methodology to other fields of expertise.
