Video Intervention/Prevention Assessment (VIA) is based at Children’s Hospital Boston and is a project of the Center on Media and Child Health. VIA gives video cameras to young people, asking them to teach clinicians about the realities of their illness experiences through the creation of audiovisual illness narratives. Learn more about VIA staff, read how VIA began, and see how we’ve been covered in the press.
