Access Health Louisiana uses kid-friendly cartoons to educate communities about vaccines

by The 100 Companies

“Wouldn’t it be fascinating to use cartoons to explain mRNA vaccines?”

This innovative idea united Dr. MarkAlain Dery, an infectious diseases specialist; Dr. Eric ‘Doc’ Griggs, a community health specialist; and David Roston, a public health filmmaker. The trio had zero experience producing animations, but why let practicalities inhibit big dreams?

In 2021 alone, the trio’s NoiseFilter team completed seven educational animations: two explain mRNA vaccines and COVID-19 variants, three describe the science of HIV, one rock n’ roll PSA teaches about Hepatitis C and another promotes diversity among clinical trials participants.

Their work is supported by Access Health Louisiana.
