We have invited Dr Burt Davis as the guest speaker at our next Science Fridays @Stellenbosch to find out more about his novel approach to health communication. Working with affected communities, he has developed and evaluated a ‘photo novel’ to use in the prevention of drug abuse, focusing specifically on methamphetamine (commonly known as ‘tik’).

Burt Davis is a lecturer at the Africa Centre for HIV/AIDS Management at Stellenbosch University. His research focuses on health communication and he is specifically interested in using visual narratives to convey health messages.
