Learning Objective #1:
Become familiar with the process of developing your community’s infographic.
Developing Your Infographic
The infographic is a critical component of your Community Nutrition Report Card. From our experience, the infographic is the most widely read and used section of the report. In fact, some communities reported only using the infographic when sharing findings with community stakeholders!
Using the highlighted key findings and recommendations from Module 4, the infographic can be developed using the fillable pdf template.
Q: How to decide on a final list of key findings or recommendations to include?
As a group, have a frank discussion on what components to include and exclude from your infographic. Remember to try to balance the importance of maintaining community relationships with desire to improve the food environments in your community.
Another thing that came into play when we were deciding which recommendations [to include in the infographic] was—I guess like politics and kind of wanting to maintain relationships. And not everybody wants all of those things to be public or like right on the infographic. So, trying to respect that certain people might not want to be kind of called out.
So, we did discuss sharing the Community Nutrition Report Card publicly, and we decided that we would make the infographic public. So, we decided that we could share the infographic with the media, but not the report, because we just felt the report had a lot of very sensitive information in it. But the infographic was just a little bit more general with the overriding pieces that we’re doing well and then recommendations for things that we could do different.
